Hello! Thank you for stopping by. I am Laurie Straten, Executive Director and Founder of Sampson and Butters Rescue and Rehab, a non-profit boarding facility designed to address the challenges many rescues have with finding a decent, inexpensive boarding facility.
I dove into the NV Rescue Scene in 2017. I have worked closely with a few organizations trying to find the right niche for me and to figure out what is truly needed in the rescue world. I determined that a decent, inexpensive boarding facility was the answer and something I could do. As many of you may or may not know, dogs tend to come into rescue with little to no training which leads to behavior issues. Finding a foster for a pup with unwanted or challenging behaviors is difficult but most of the time it’s a fixable problem thru commitment, time, and the appropriate training. The idea of Sampson and Butters Rescue and Rehab was born! I created my own non-profit and worked on making the facility happen.
