Meet Sammie- A Friend in Need

This past week, I had the opportunity to meet a friend who is a terrific Paw! I was going to introduce you to him yesterday in my weekly column "Friday's Friend", barkingly, I thought he deserved extra attention.

I've got a very special friend to introduce you to today from Operation Paws For Homes.  He is really a cool dude......   Please meet Sammie!

Sammie is in need of a cleft palette surgery. He's currently fostered with OPH. Right now he's on a medical hold until he gets his surgery, but he's still up for adoption pending the surgery. Currently, OPH is fundraising for the surgery.

"RUFF!! Hi!! My name is Sammie. I am a 2 year old Boxer mix with a shy and gentle personality.  I love to play and romp around with all the other dogs in my foster home.

You know, I am a very special boy!  I was born with a bilateral cleft lip and cleft hard palate which has a severe lesion that'll require advanced plastic and reconstructive surgical techniques.

I do have some trouble eating and drinking, which makes it hard for me to maintain a healthy weight.

Would you be able to help me with my surgery expense?  Can you find it in your heart to help me rebuild my smile?"

Instructions To donate to Sammie's surgery go to there is a "Donate" button at the middle right of the screen that will take you to our PayPal page. Enter the amount you wish to donate. On the next page, there is a section for "Special Instructions" -- put "For Sammie's surgery" in the box to indicate that your donation is earmarked for Sammie's care.
