Welcome to Samantha's Friends


Samantha’s Friends has been in existence for the last 25 years providing service canine support to individuals in need. During the last 25 years SF’s has donated over $96,000 to organizations through their annual fundraiser held each year at Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club.



Mission Statement


A 501C3 non-profit organization, is to help individuals challenged by disabilities such as autism, stroke, combat injuries, and other catastrophic illnesses, gain independence and companionship with the assistance of a service canine. Most recently SF’s has partnered with Southeastern Guide Dogs who provides Service Canines at no charge to the visually impaired and veterans suffering from PTSD.
