Sammy's Hope Animal Welfare & Adoption Center

It's almost here! After more than four years of supporting local shelters, helping care for animals, socialize them, provide for their medical care, and find them forever homes, Sammy’s Hope is thrilled to finally announce the opening of its own shelter –the Sammy’s Hope Animal Welfare and Adoption Center, in Sayreville, NJ.

The Sammy’s Hope Animal Welfare and Adoption Center will be a place where animals -dogs and cats, will be looked after with the love and care they deserve; a place where they can feel safe; where their physical and emotional needs will be met, short of having a forever home; and where caring staff and volunteers will prepare them for adoption, and work to find them loving homes. 

The shelter is scheduled to open to the public in January 2015, but the animals need your support!  Sammy’s Hope would like to invite you to be a part of this important and significant work for animals.  Right now there are 2 ways you can help meet our January 2015 goal:
