You may remember him from such television shows as “Taxi”, “Cheers” and of course, “The Simpsons”. Emmy Award-Winning writer, director and producer, Sam Simon, is also the benefactor behind one of the nation’s foremost canine charitable organizations. The Sam Simon Foundation serves the greater Los Angeles community with its free Mobile Pet Spay and Neuter Clinic and Assistance Dogs Program which rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to become hearing dogs for the deaf.
The programs offered by The Foundation are free of charge. Furthermore, The Foundation is wholly funded by Sam Simon and does not accept donations. Check out the profile 60 Minutes recently ran on Mr. Simon and his mission. This self-proclaimed “Dog Nut” is our kinda guy!
