Our Programs and Resources
Shelter and Rescue ResourcesSupport the dogs in your care from intake to adoption and learn how to proactively connect with your community with our ebooks, posters, videos, and other resources.
Our Assistance Dog program highlights the fact that every dog, no matter its breed, breed-mix, background, or what it looks like, is an individual. This program changes the lives of the dogs and makes the world more accessible for people with disabilities.
We provide expertly trained former rescue “pit bull” dogs at no cost to police and sheriff departments across the country. The dogs are trained for 4 to 6 weeks by Universal K9. Then, the dogs go to work keeping their communities drug-free.

Animal Farm Foundation grants funds to animal welfare organizations who share our philosophy of treating all dogs as individuals. Our grants fund initiatives for outreach, enrichment, socialization, adoption, and education, as well as play yard construction.
We work with the NYC Department of Correction (DOC) to make a positive impact in the lives of dogs and people through a program that teaches dogs basic manners and helps inmates with life skills.
Community Advocate ResourcesSupport the human-canine bond within your community with information on fair and non-discriminatory practices, which, unlike BSL actually work.
