You found a lost dog in NorCA...
You want to help them stay out of the animal shelter and reunite him with his family or - if absolutely necessary - help him find a stable new home. You ROCK.
In most cases, we can support you with resources and assistance, provided you have followed local laws by first searching for the owners.
Help can include:
- Promotional assistance
- Spay/neuter help and some vet care help, depending on need.
- Support for housing the dog comfortably in your home.
- Occasionally, we get lucky and can create space for Good Sam dogs in our rescue program.
- Most Good Sam dogs are eligible for training help in our Saturday classes.
