Sammie's Friends

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 otherwise be euthanized to end their suffering.

Scooter's Pals

Founded in 2008 by Susan as a life-affirming tribute to Scooter and Molly, Scooter's Pals is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to saving as many dogs as possible from needless death.

We have evolved into a dynamic, all-volunteer group who all share the belief that keeping our companion animals safe, giving them the care, love, and respect that they deserve is an effective way to build a better community.

Pound Puppy Rescue

Pound Puppy Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 2001. We rescue approximately 400 puppies every year. We are a completely volunteer run organization whose purpose is to keep puppies out of overcrowded shelters where they are at risk for disease and euthanasia. Puppies are fostered in volunteer foster homes where we can keep the puppies healthy, socialized, and in their litter, until they are old enough to be placed in permanent, loving homes.
