Rowley has been waiting to be adopted for a very long time and just needs someone to give him a chance. Rowley has a real zest for life and can't wait to shower some affection on a new family. He is super good looking (Duh!), smart, independent and eager to learn all about life in a forever home. Rowley likes people, other dogs and bird watching. He only enjoys short walks because of his arthritis. The shelter also recently learned that he may have some hearing loss. He needs a family that understands him and how to keep him happy and safe. Please stop by the shelter and ask to meet Rowley.
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.
