Our mission is to rescue and find loving homes for Samoyeds in need-  regardless of age, health, or geography. 

Y-Not Save a Sam is an all-volunteer non-profit organization founded in 2012 to rescue Samoyeds in need, whether they are in shelters, found on the streets or an owner surrender. We are open to saving dogs in all geographic areas (both in the United States and abroad), of all ages, and in all health conditions. We try to help dogs that no one else will, and that can be a heavy burden on our finances.  Y-Not Save a Sam operates independently and must generate our own donations to fund operational costs including veterinary care, travel expenses, boarding, and training.  We do what we can, and always wish we could do more.

From time to time, the rescue groups that we work with will have other breeds in need of loving homes.  Even though we are a breed-specific rescue, we try to help them out when we can.  (It's just the right thing to do.)  To stay true to our mission, those dogs will always have dedicated fund-raisers and are not directly funded by our Rescue.  (We'll still post them here, though, because everyone loves to see a good news story!)
