Northwest Samoyed RescueWashington, Oregon, Northern Idaho
December 23, 2020:
A Samoyed named Winston was seized as part of an abuse case in King County, Washington, on November 23. He has been in their care since that time. The owner signed a release giving him to King County, but Animal Services had to wait a period prescribed by law before they could let him leave. That came today when they released him to the care of Northwest Samoyed Rescue. He has been neutered and will recover in a foster home. We already have a new forever home lined up for Winston.
Thank you to all of you who cared about what happened to Winston. We will post occasional photos and updates, as we receive them, on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/NorthwestSamoyedRescue/
If you are interested in adopting a Samoyed in the future, please visit our Adoptions page and return the application form you find there. If a dog is already part of your family, please give it extra hugs tonight.
Every year hundreds of Samoyeds throughout the country become homeless through no fault of their own. These are rescue dogs. They are not second class dogs; they are dogs that need a second chance.
How do these dogs become homeless? Sometimes they come from broken homes. Sometimes their people move away or an owner dies or a new baby arrives. Sometimes we find them in shelters. Usually they are adults, sometimes they are old, and only rarely do we see puppies or very young dogs.
Rescue dogs are usually housebroken and many have some training. Rescuing a Samoyed gives a young dog a new life. It gives an older dog the chance to live out his last years in comfort. He will give you unquestioning devotion and a friend for life.
