How your giving helps!

Hello Friends -

Our mission is to provide medical care for the animals at the shelter and for other disadvantaged animals in our community. At this time with many without jobs and other economic hardships the animals often fall to the bottom of the priority list. With your help we have been able to continue our service to the animals. Some animals come to us in the most dire straits and with your donations and our extremely talented veterinarians we have been able to get them back on their feet and make them into adoptable pets for some lucky person or family. We have now been at this for 22 years and every time an animal gets better and goes to a new loving home it is as thrilling as it was the first time.


Sammie’s Friends is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Tax ID #52-2439192.  The mission of Sammie's Friends is to provide medical care for the animals at the Nevada County Animal Shelter, making them adoptable, and to support other disadvantaged animals in Nevada County that without help would continue to suffer or would be euthanized.  Sammie’s Friends also operates the Nevada County Animal Shelter at 14647 McCourtney Road.
