Sammie is a calm girl who loves to be close to her people. She is currently living in a foster home and doing well after she took some time to adjust to her new environment. Sammie gets along with dogs and cats but prefers a home with older kids. She loves to be groomed and feels pretty special when she has a new haircut. Sammie would love a home to call her own where she can curl up with her new family on the couch or sleep at your feet during the night.

Sammie's adoption fee is $175; she is microchipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.

About Helping Strays of Monroe County

About Our Shelter...

We promote the humane care of all abandoned and stray animals in our community. We are a no-kill shelter. All of our pets leave the shelter for their forever homes micro-chipped, up to date on vaccines, and altered.

Founded in 2002, Helping Strays is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization supported entirely by donations.

Our lucky animals receive appropriate medical care, are featured on the Helping Strays website "adoption list" and are taken to several adoption events every month in an attempt to find permanent, loving homes.
