What We Do
Our mission is to promote responsible dog ownership through education, programming, and assistance. We do this four ways: through Humane Education, Outreach, Advocacy, and Shelter to Service. One of our most well known programs is Operation Sidekick, where we train bully breed dogs to become service dogs to a veteran with PTSD at no cost to the veteran.
Interesting Info
  • For Operation Sidekick, we help 20 dogs and three veterans a year.
  • 12.9% of veterans experience PTSD. This is staggering when compared to the 6.8% of the general population that experiences PTSD.
