Sammie's Lonely Hearts Club was formed to help draw attention to some of our very special furry friends. Every homeless animal deserves a home and we want their time here at the shelter to be short and sweet and full of love. The "short" part doesn't always happen and sometimes they stay more than 60 days. This is the ongoing challenge of being a no-kill shelter. Be sure to read the article below about the effects of living in a shelter.
Sammie's Lonely Hearts Cats
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.
Sammie's Adoptable Cats
All Sammie's Friends cats have been spayed/neutered and are current on vaccines.
