It is imperative that you speak clearly and slowly! Sadly, many calls can NOT be returned because we can not decipher the message. If you've called NISA and not received a call back, it's probably due to the fact we could not understand your message. Call again!

It is NISA's mission to find the best suitable home for each available Samoyed. This is achieved by knowing the personalities and quirks of each Samoyed and matching them to the most qualified applicant. Understandably this is not a speedy process, therefore we ask applicants to be patient. NISA is governed by an all-volunteer staff. Volunteers have family, employment, and personal commitments in addition to the time they donate to help the less-fortunate Samoyed.

Each Diamond in the rough listed on our site has been tested for heart worm disease, parasites (internal and external) and vaccinated. All rescued Samoyeds are either spayed or neutered and micro-chipped prior to placement.

Spot Light On Glory

Hi, my name is Glory. I am a female Samoyed. I am around 12 years old.

I love everyone I meet, however, if I'm completely honest, I want a person or family ALL to myself (no other pets please) so I don't have to share any treats, playtime, long walks together or those wonderful belly-rubs. I am beautiful (I'm told this by everyone who meets me), house and crate trained, know some basic commands and have nice house manners.

I do have an auto immune disease, which affects my skin, so my foster mom needs to give me weekly baths (I don't mind them) and we check my bloodwork a couple times and year and make sure my liver values are good.
