Some useful resources related to showing, rescuing and owning Samoyeds are listed in this post.

AKC Superintendents

AKC Superintendents

American Kennel Club (AKC) dog shows are superintended by professional superintendents licensed by the AKC. Superintendents assist show-hosting kennel clubs with tasks such as site inspection, preparation of judging schedules and premium lists, and acceptance of entry and entry fees. If you are entering an AKC dog show as an exhibitor, you will most likely need to send your entry in to one of these superintendents. MB-F, Inc. is the superintendent for our club’s Specialty Shows.

Rescue Organizations

San Francisco Samoyed Rescue

San Francisco Samoyed Rescue (SFSR) is a non-profit corporation founded to render help to needy or displaced Samoyed dogs.

The rescue was founded in 1974 and received its 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 1977. This organization covers Northern and Central California and Reno, Nevada.

National Samoyed Rescue Trust

San Francisco Samoyed Rescue is an affiliate of National Samoyed Rescue (NSR), an all-volunteer non-profit trust. The mission of NSR is to act as a service organization providing resources, support, networking, and guidance to assist existing Samoyed rescuers and help establish new rescue groups in areas lacking coverage. By fostering relations between rescues and regional breed clubs, breeders, and fanciers, NSR seeks to provide a unified single point of reference for the Samoyed rescue community. NSR strives to enable the humane, ethical, and effective rescue of Samoyeds in need across the United States through the substantiation and verification of its affiliated rescues’ practices thereby ensuring that shelters, humane societies, and the general public are confident in their local Samoyed rescue representatives.
