How You Can Help!

We are always in need of foster homes and people willing to give us long-term hands-on help with the rescued dogs, but we do understand that some people just can't make that type of commitment. We've tried to come up with other ways of assistance from people including the following:

  • Transportation of rescued dogs from relinquishing individuals to a rescue representative or the veterinarian's office if in bad shape
  • Transportation of rescued dogs to and from the veterinarian for medical treatment while in rescue
  • Bathing / grooming / dematting of a rescued dog, especially when they are received into rescue
  • Training and/or socialization of rescued dogs -- sometimes this is as simple as taking the dog for a ride in the car on a regular basis to get them over a fear of riding
  • Donate the cost of one spay or neuter per year
  • Donate prepaid long-distance cards for use in returning calls about dogs in need of rescue, placement of rescues, reference checks, etc.
  • Donate stamps for use in mailing adoption applications and other correspondence
  • Donate gift certificates for photocopies or have applications and information copied on behalf of rescue
  • Donate Heartguard, Frontiline and/or Interceptor in the appropriate size/weight range for the prevention of parasites and heartworms until the dog is adopted out to a home
  • Donate the cost of a classified advertisement to help advertise dogs lost/found or available for adoption
  • Volunteer to answer calls in response to classified ads
  • Donate gift certificates for the purchase of dogfood / pet supplies when needed (we ask that you please check with us prior to purchasing actual bags of dogfood to donate for the following reasons: 1) switching brands of dogfood can upset a dog's digestive tract, thereby further complicating the rescue's recovery, 2) our need for dog food is directly proportional to the number of rescues we have at that time-- we don't want the dogfood to go rancid and be wasted)
  • Donate leads
  • Donate brushes, combs, or other grooming equipment appropriate for Samoyeds
  • Donate items of value to be raffled or sold to raise money for rescue
  • Donate prepaid gas money to fund transport of rescues
  • Offer to coordinate and run a raffle, garage sale or Internet sale of items to raise money for rescues
  • Donate new or good-condition used equipment such as crates, kennels, pens, exercise pens, etc.
  • Donate metal dogfood bowls and water buckets
  • Volunteer to check your local pound or shelter for unadopted Samoyeds whose time is running out and assist in getting them into rescue
  • Donate kennel-type towels for grooming and clean-up purposes
  • Donate gift certificates at an office-supply store to purchase needed supplies
  • Donate the cost of microchipping the rescue for identification at the group's veterinarian's office
