About

Sammy's Hope is a volunteer-run rescue group that finds Forever Homes for dogs & cats in shelters.

Sammy’s Hope is a volunteer-run rescue group that finds Forever Homes for dogs and cats in shelters. We got our start working with pit bulls in the Edison Animal Shelter, where pits were not adopted out directly to the public before we began our program. Having successfully placed many of the pit bulls who have come through the animal shelter, we have recently expanded our focus to include cats and non-pit dogs.

Sammy's Hope took our name from one of the dogs in the Edison shelter called Samson (“Sammy” for short). He is a large brindle Pit Bull/Boxer mix whose sweet demeanor and winning personality stole all of our hearts. We felt he exemplified all of the wonderful qualities of these misunderstood dogs but knew that it would be difficult to find him a forever home given the public’s perception of Pit Bulls. The idea behind “Sammy’s Hope” was that we would work our hardest to bring some hope to the future of Sammy and all of the animals like him unfortunate enough to find themselves homeless.

Our organization is comprised solely of volunteers and funded entirely by public donations. The money donated to our organization goes toward spaying/neutering and vaccinations for all animals adopted through us. We also fund the medical treatment of many animals who come into the shelter system needing operations or special veterinary treatment above and beyond basic wellness.
