Single Guy Seeks Love--Meet Phil


 Old enough to shave, but still a boy at heart. All my women friends say I’m too great a catch to be single. What gives?


Nice looking, polite, obedient. Is there a girl out there who wants a traditional guy who still believes in ladies first and the magic of the first sniff?

 Are you looking for long walks in the park?

  Want to share cuddles in front of the tv?

 I’m your man. Let’s meet and talk over a tall glass of pond water.
You can learn more about me HERE,
or come meet me at Sammie's Friends Animal Shelter, 14647 McCourtney Rd, Grass Valley, CA 95949, 530-471-5041 

Some details: I'm about 6 months old, and probably have some pit and something something in my genes. Don't you just love genes???
Anyway, this nice family gave me a break from the shelter and I had so much fun with their kids and goats and cats and chickens! They said I was the perfect house guest! Come on now! Let's talk!

COPPER--Single Male Believes in Love at First Sight




 Urban hipster who still believes in love at first sight seeks same. Digs classic cartoons and all Ren and Stimpy.

Treats. I love treats.

 Watch this video of Me!

I'm a philosophy buff, and believe the world delivers to us just what we put in to it. Spiritual but not religious--Spinoza, Deepak, the Kabbalah are a few of my fav reading. 
I AM a lover.

I'm a particular dude and don't really care for casual meetings with other dogs, and I'm sorry, but I really dislike cats (hey, we all have our issues, and I'm willing to take on yours!).

I'm a real sucker for people who love me though. Really. You love me? I can't help myself, I love you right back! I'm mean right back atcha, babe!
I'm loving on our photographer, Karen.
If think we might have a chance, and if you're searching for nirvana, let's fetch a couple chai lattes and see if we connect.

 Learn more about me HERE!

Single Guy Looking for Love --Vance

 Natural bodybuilder who likes to work out with other buff muscle dudes and dudettes is looking to be worshiped.

I'm a very butch guy—61 pounds of solid muscle—
6-pack abs—nice bubble butt.

 I love natural foods and beverages (no toilet-bowl water sippers please--although an occasional Twinkie is acceptable.)

My pic is for real, you should be for real too.

 Don’t string me along. Let’s meet over some Perrier 
and share our portfolios.

Call me at Sammie's Friends 530-471-5041 in Grass Valley, CA.

Rare Breeds at Sammie's Friends Animal Shelter!

Sammie's Friends has a shelter full of the rarest of rare dog breeds!

 Bianca is a 'Waltre Hound' who arrived in June. Her previous owner kept her tied up in the garage. Poor thing! This young girl (about a year and a half) needs a family to love and play with. She displays lovely vocal abilities. Bianca LOVES playing with other dogs. Please consider this gorgeous girl as your true-love! 
Bianca is a rare Waltre Hound

Gucci is a Bigdon, a cross between a Great Dane and Blunopi. He's BIG and goofy, and will be the best friend you have ever had. He arrived here August 7th and we're amazed that an owner never came for him. We figure he's about 7-years or older. What's that mean for you? It means you will have a mature friend to romp with! He's housebroken, and loves his toys (so much so that he carries one with him on his walks!).

Gucci is a rare Bigdon

Gucci listens to Cheryl

Pansy is a rare Piticue
Pansy is a Piticue and she's been at the shelter since May! You would have a hard time finding a more tolerant and good-natured girl. A totally, like fur-sure, California girl, she loves swimming, and walks on the beach and fast cars. Pansy is NOT a  fan of cats, and doesn't believe cats and dogs should EVER live together. Silly girl. But that's her thing, and we'll just have to agree with her.

Call Sammie's Friends at 530-471-5041 or just swing by to meet these guys. Kennel hours are every day but Sunday.

If You Knew Buddy


Hellooo? I need you.

What can you say about a dog that grins at you all the time? That he's nuts? Or is he just the sweetest dog in the world? The latter is the correct answer. Buddy is the sweetest!

Buddy is great on a leash because he's with YOU and that's all he really wants. 

He loves to romp with other dogs too! 

From Buddy's lips "Aw come on! Let's play! Got a ball? I can't play with livestock or cats--I just get too darn excited, but I'm ready to play with YOU and your other family members!


I kiss you with my lips.

Buddy is learning the command 'wait' before he jumps out of the car, "CAR? Did someone say CAR?" And he's learning to 'leave it' too, which helps when he sees a squirrel.Likes water, so a swim would be a blast, or even a small kiddy pool!

Come meet Buddy at Sammie's Friends! Kennel hours are 12-4 every day but Sunday at 14647 McCourtney Rd, Grass Valley, CA.

Helping Horses at Sammie's Friends

Oliver was thin and in need of care when he came to us from a homeless man.

This donkey's foot was very overgrown.
You might think of Sammie's Friends as a place for dogs and cats only, but we get our share of horses donkeys who need our help too. Horses have some completely different needs from dogs and cats. They need their hooves trimmed, their teeth floated (filed) sheath cleaned, and udders cleaned to name a few.  And like dogs and cats, they need good food (hay), vaccines, and a place to get out of harsh weather.

 And all that care is incredibly expensive. Grass hay is around $21 a bale right now, and an average size (1000lb)  horse can go through a bale in a few days.

Donkey was in need of help, and has a new home now.

Here's a small selection of horses who needed our help in 2012. Thanks to your donations and two grants from the ASPCA, we were able to help all the horses and donkeys that came to us.
Mini mare, Pearl, was in our care for quite awhile.

While some are in foster homes for care, a few make it to us here, and we care for them until we can find them great new digs.  We thank all of you, and the ASPCA for your generosity!

Mini mare baby, Jewel, now has a new home.

Pets of the Week: Zeke and Neiko

Zeke is one darn fun dog. He says, “Do you like to play ball? I love to play ball. Like to hike? I love to hike! Like other dogs? Me too!!”

Zeke is a 5 years old Britney/lab cross. He gets along with other dogs. (Probably not cats and little furry things.) His previous owners moved where they couldn’t take him. Why would anyone move someplace they couldn’t take this guy??? Such a cool boy. He’s house trained, understands no, and he’s been neutered and is up-to-date on his shots. He’s been around men, women and kids. 

Zeke loves to play fetch. Full of energy, this guy will be a wonderful family friend.  
About the Brittany (from the AKC website) The Brittany is strong, quick and agile, requiring exercise and activity to occupy his body and mind. He is a happy and alert dog who possesses willing attitude. Regular brushing is important, but their shorter coats need minimal maintenance.

Neiko is a nice, older gentleman, around 10 years old. He likes dogs and people, but he’s not too crazy about other cats. Once he knows you, he’s relaxes and purrs. And he LOVES to be held.

In his heart, he feels he’s a retired fellow who should be sitting on the beach under an umbrella and with a glass of milk at hand. 

Still, he’ll be perfectly amenable to supervising your home too, if the beach gig is unavailable. Neiko talks to us when we come up to him. 

Come on down and talk Neiko. You'll both enjoy the conversation!
