The dogs that come into our program are rescued from local, underfunded and overcrowded shelters. Some have been there for years and don’t understand how they ended up there, and some are so terrified that they've shut down and can’t function. We serve as advocates for these neglected, abandoned and abused dogs who have been overlooked and forgotten. We obtain foster placement for them and begin step-down care between shelter life and forever home life, where we provide training and socialization, and watch them blossom into happy companion dogs. We then find stable and permanent homes where these dogs can thrive. We encourage and provide follow up training support as needed for these dogs once they are adopted.
