Our goal at Sammie's Friends is to have our animals adopted witinin 60 days. Sounds easy, but it's a big challenge.  The Lonely Hearts in our club keep getting over looked week after week and 60 days is a long time to live in a shelter. Please help us spread the word and find homes for these very deserving friends.
