Adopt Ava

Hello! I am Ava. I am a friendly girl who loves meeting new people. I have a very sweet personality, like to play fetch, and enjoy going on walks. I really would like a family who is willing to spend a lot of time with me, and give me lots of attention. I LOVE treats so am very easy to train.

Out of State Transportation


Some of you may not know that we have Sammie's Friends animals all over the U.S. (West Virginia, Illinois, Texas, Georgia, Montana, Minnesota, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Michigan, Oklahoma, Nevada, Utah and Arizona) and we even have two in Canada and one in Mexico.  If you see an animal that you like and want to adopt we will work with you by phone to determine that you and the pet are a good match.  We have sent animals by plane, private and commercial, transport services, individual volunteers have driven animals to new places.  Our very own Co-Founder, Curt has driven two dogs to Canada and one cat to Oregon.  This mostly applies to adult cats and dogs.  We have also placed three horses on Sanctuaries out of state.
