IMPORTANT: Read this if you want a Samoyed:

In recent years we have placed from one to three dogs annually. We continue to receive applications, sometimes several a day. We give preference to those who have lived with Samoyeds before, because this is not always an easy dog to own. If you haven't, it's only fair to tell you the odds aren't good.

Are you looking for a young dog? Perhaps a puppy or a dog under three years old?  It's unlikely we will be able to help you. Young dogs are seldom in rescue and we have so many apps on file for young dogs it would take years and years to get to you.

Because so many more people apply than the number of dogs we help, many of our applicants will end up looking for a breeder. For advice on breeders, click here.

If you have room in your heart for a senior dog, or even a middle-aged dog, we really want to hear from you because those are the dogs who need homes. 

We ask for an adoption donation of $250
, which is actually less than the costs of an average rescue dog. We also require a signed adoption agreement.

Thank you.

To download an application, RIGHT-CLICK HERE and save the PDF application file to your computer. On a separate sheet, please give us a short paragraph on exactly why you are looking for a Samoyed and not some other breed.

You can either scan and email the application to the address below or drop it in the mail to the address at the bottom of it.
Honest, we aren't trying to make this difficult. We are trying to minimize the dozens of apps each month from people who want Samoyeds because they are pretty dogs.
