Save a Mutt Shelter & Rescue



SAMS: Save a Mutt Shelter

We are a small shelter with big dreams.

We have pulled and sheltered hundreds of dogs from kill shelters and found homes for those dogs who would have otherwise been euthanized.  We have transported over a thousand dogs to rescues in northern Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana as well as to specific breed rescues. We also accept owner relinquished dogs so they do not have to experience the negative environment of a dog pound. We prefer helping people through education and training to keep their beloved pets.

Meet SAMS dog Maya:

Dear SAMS,

We just wanted to send you a happy tales update on one of your many rescues.  A year ago you saved Gracie and her puppies were born in a safe, warm environment because of that.  Your hard work and kindness enabled us to adopt one of the sweetest dogs ever. Maya is amazing and we feel so lucky to have her.  She’s very smart and has learned so much.  She’s been fully housebroken since she was about 5 months old, sits, shakes, speaks, stays (most of the time), and more.  She went through a bit of chewing phase but she’s been trying so hard to be good and is doing a lot better. She gets along with all people and animals and is very sociable and loving.  I could go on and on but I think you can tell what a joy she is and how much we love having her as part of our family.

Thank you so much SAMS for all you do.
