Sam was born & raised with animals. After volunteering and fostering at a high kill shelter, she wanted to help bring change to a flawed system.

When one of Sam's foster dogs was unexpectedly put down without her knowing, she felt helpless. So she turned compassion into action and Hearts for Paws was born. Though Sam wasn't able to save 1 year old Marsh, HFP runs in his honor--- for Marsh, and for all the dogs that never got the chance to find peace, love, or a family of their own.
