2018 Picnic

Every year we host a picnic gathering to celebrate Samoyeds.

Meet other Samoyed owners in Northern California, learn about caring for Samoyeds, and have a great time!

Thanks for coming to the 2019 Picnic!

We loved seeing so many new and familiar faces.

It is with great sadness that we have come to the decision that this year's
SFSR Annual Meeting & Picnic must be canceled.

Every year, we all look forward to this event and visiting with our beloved members, fans, alumni, and of course the Samoyeds.

We had hoped that the COVID-19 pandemic and all the safety restrictions for parks and the general public would have been eased by now, yet we cannot in good conscience risk the safety of our members, fans, and their dogs.

We will miss you all very much and hope to see you in person next year!

Our picnic is also our annual fundraising social event, so we have a lot of ideas on how to continue our fundraising efforts online. Though this is a difficult time for everyone, the Samoyeds still need our help, and we are committed to seamlessly continuing the work we've done since 1974.

We are preparing for our annual online Fall Fundraising Auction via Facebook, and you can support us by either donating items for the auction or purchasing items once the auction has gone live. Please keep in mind that donated items should be easily shippable.

Please also find more information below for the many ways to support and donate to SFSR.

We appreciate your support and wish you all health and happiness!

San Francisco Samoyed Rescue is an all-volunteer-run nonprofit that has been rescuing and rehoming Samoyed dogs in the Bay Area since 1974! Together, we can do even more. Interested in lending a hand? We’re always looking for volunteers to help our dedicated team. And because we’re entirely foster-based, foster homes are the backbone of our rescue. 

Here is a list of ways you can help us save more Samoyeds:

  • Drop us a line at rescue@sfsr.org if you’d like to volunteer with us.

  • Please fill out the foster form on our site if you’re interested.

  • Remember to renew your membership to show your support.

  • Set SFSR as your charity of choice when you shop on Amazon Smile.

  • Join igive.com when shopping online. You shop, we get money!

  • Donate securely on our site. Any amount helps!

  • Check out our Store for your SFSR and White Pine merchandise.

Plus, you can always see the dogs we have available for adoption on our site!

And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.
Thank you so much for your love and support.
