Coming Events...


SCARF will once again support health testing at this year's Samoyed Club of America National Specialty.  This support will help to lower costs for OFA Eye Examinations and OFA Cardiology examinations for Samoyeds.  For further information on these health clinics please check out the Samoyed Club of America 2016 National Specialty website at

Testing is a crucial part in helping us all to know and understand where the breed stands on different elements of health.  While some owners choose for their information to remain anonymous, the number of incidents are still recorded and reported.  It is beneficial to have this type of information in order to target research most beneficial to the breed.  Working to make health testing affordable helps to achieve this crucial information.
