To meet any of our dogs you must first complete our online adoption application on our website. For more information and the adoption application for Sam, please visit our website below
Sam is such a cutie! He bonds quickly with the people around him and is so much fun to be around. Sam's energetic, without being spazzy, he's cuddly, without being needy, and he's got a smile that could melt Antarctica, but will probably just result in you giving him more biscuits.Sam can be a little choosy about his 4 legged friends, as he wasn't properly socialized before his rescue, and doesn't seem to be a big fan of small animals. While Sam is not aggressive, he does need to polish up on his social skills and we are working on that with him. He clearly loves stuffed toys - at his first adoption event, he found that PetSmart was a virtual playground!
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
