Who We Are

San Francisco Samoyed Rescue (SFSR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization supported by volunteers in Northern California.


We rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome Samoyeds and Samoyed mixes. 

We understand that Samoyeds require a high level of care. 

Our mission is to ensure all owners are equipped to have fulfilling friendships with their Samoyed.


Every dollar or hour you contribute makes a difference.

Your donations enable us to provide foster care, cover costly veterinary bills,  rehabilitate rigorously, and transport dogs across the state.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to rescue Samoyeds in shelters or lost in the streets, relocate Samoyeds that are no longer wanted or that can no longer be cared for by their owners, and assist in securing veterinary attention for injured or sick Samoyeds.

Where We Work

Limited resources and corporate bylaws constrain San Francisco Samoyed Rescue's endeavors. Our geographic area is Northern California from Monterey County north and east to the Nevada border. We make occasional exceptions for rescues and placements in the Reno/Carson City, Nevada area; southern Oregon; Central and Southern California; and, in very rare cases, elsewhere in the U.S.

We also work closely with our Southern California partner:
