Reserve Sept 16 For Our Next Sam O Rama!

What began as NISA's Rescue Reunion in 1996 has since evolved into Sam O Rama. We changed the name of our annual celebration to encourage all proud Samoyed lovers and owners to participate whether they acquired their Samoyed from a breeder, another rescue group, a shelter or through the classified.

Hmm, This one stumps me, although I want to guess it's Carly Jacobson

Rev. Joanne Skidmore

This adorable little female was an unclaimed stray in Chicago and is called Biscuit, owned by the Stuctmann family

This is what Sam O Rama is all about.
Together, we celebrate second chances to live a full and wonderful life.
