Chippin' in for Sam

I decided to put a gofundme campaign together for our old friend Sam Jones. He has been going through some very difficult times! He has been in and out of the Hospital recently with debilitating kidney stones, the Shingles, and a serious case of Sepsis that nearly took his life... He recently found a room to rent that accepted his two dogs, and he recently got an hourly job after having to close his dog training and dog daycare businesses in Traverse City, MI in April due to these and other health issues. He needs help staying up on his feet after all of this! He needs support! Please, let’s give him a hand!
He is responsible for helping thousands of dogs and their owners in this area as well as helping many families for free with adopted Shelter dogs in need of help with their behavior!
He needs money to help prepare for taking two Dog Trainer and Dog Behavior Counseling Certifications coming up soon.  When passed, these will help him qualify for a job hopefully at a Nationally known or Regional Animal Shelter.  Sam then wants to move to wherever he is needed most in the country, helping reevaluate and rehabilitate dogs from busted Puppy Mills and from difficult hoarding situations, where these unsocialized dogs would typically be euthanized. Let’s help Sam realize his goal to work where he can help the most with saving dogs lives!!  Thanks everybody!
