Each year, Sam Simon (the co-creator of The Simpsons holds a Halloween party for dogs.
That’s cute & all, but there’s more to Sam Simon’s story that will really touch your heart…
The Sam Simon Foundation gives stray & abandoned dogs a new lease on life.
They rescue dogs and then train them to be service dogs, rather than being euthanized.
The Foundation also offers spay and neuter services for free via the Foundation’s state-of-the-art surgery machine on wheels.
One interesting thing to note:
The Sam Simon Foundation does not accept donations. He foots the entire bill himself!
Here’s the story from CBS’s 60 Minutes: Sam Simon, The Dog Nut.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
