June Charity Spotlight on Sammy's Hope

By 4Knines Staff. | Giving Back

They took their name from one of the dogs in the shelter called Samson ("Sammy" for short). Sammy is a large brindle Pit Bull/Boxer mix whose sweet demeanor and winning personality stole everyone's heart.

  June Charity Spotlight on Sammy's HopeThey felt he exemplified all 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 they would work their hardest to bring some hope to the future of Sammy, and all the animals like him unfortunate enough to find themselves homeless. Sammy's Hope became a formal animal welfare organization in September 2010. The organization grew out of 5 years of volunteer efforts at the Edison Animal Shelter by one of its co-founders, Elda Hubbard. Early in her experience as a volunteer, Elda, a JP Stevens High school teacher, started a program called JPaWS to give high school students the opportunity to volunteer at the shelter. For Sammy's Hope, like Sammy himself, they did not know what would lie sammy's hopeahead. Within a week of becoming a formal organization, Sammy himself was fostered and adopted a few months later. Within the first 6 month, Sammy's Hope was able to move approximately 30 dogs out of the shelter that would have otherwise been considered unadoptable. This achievement far exceeded the initial expectations.

All animals in their care receive medical care (including vaccinations, testing and spay/neuter surgery), socialization and behavior training as needed.

They also serve as a resource to the community to help solve challenging pet behavior issues, support and operate TNR projects, and encourage and support humane treatment of all animals. They focus especially on animals that have been in shelters for especially long periods, those being overlooked for adoption for any number of reasons, and those whose behaviors may be hindering their adoption.

Sammy's Hope is a place where other shelters and animal rescue organizations can send, on a selective basis, hard-to- place animals.

Their main partners are municipal animal shelters and rescue groups"”including Liberty Humane Society, the Woodbridge Animal Shelter, the Trenton Animal Shelter, The Perth Amboy Animal Shelter, and the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center.

Sammy's Hope provides a helpful and specialized resource for these organizations and their most at-risk animals. By offering more focused behavior support, frequent human and animal socialization, they vastly increase the chances and opportunities to place homeless dogs and cats in loving forever homes. As with all nonprofits, Sammy's Hope relies on the kindness of volunteers and the generosity of donors. Each month, 4Knines selects a worthy organization to "SPOTLIGHT," and we hope you will join us in supporting Sammy's Hope with your donation.

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.

Quick delivery, easy install, great quality!

Our cargo cover got here quickly, took one minute to install, and has nice padding and looks like it will last. We have 3 big dogs so it will get a workout! We have a GMC Acadia and the fit is as close to custom as you can get.
