Help us care for our shelter animals until they find their forever homes...


By including Sammie’s Friends in your will, you will be able to continue providing support for the homeless pets at the Nevada County Animal Shelter. You can make your bequest for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or specific assets from your estate.

Your first step should be to speak with your attorney or Estate planner and advise them of your wishes.

Your planner will require to know our legal name  and address:

Sammie’s Friends

14647 McCourtney Road

Grass Valley, CA 95949.

Our 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable status will provide key tax savings for your estate.

Our Federal Tax I.D. number is 52-2439192.


A percentage bequest can be anything from 1% to 100% of your estate. One advantage of this type of bequest is that, as your estate increases in value, your bequest to Sammie’s Friends will also grow.


Should you decide on a residual bequest, Sammie’s Friends would receive all or a portion of the balance or residue of your estate after other specific bequests have been processed. By selecting Sammie’s Friends as the beneficiary of this residue, you help the probate process.


If you decide on a specific bequest, this can be for a dollar amount or a specific item from your estate.

There are other planned giving option’s that your estate planner will inform you about.

Bequests can be designated for many purposes or given without restriction. Whatever you should decide to do, Sammie’s Friends pledge to meet your wishes.
