What We Do
We bring dogs and people together to end discrimination
We train “pit bull” dogs to assist people with disabilities. We place the dogs with individuals who have mobility, hearing, or psychiatric disabilities.
Using video chat services, Pets Together connects people and their pets to those most at risk for social isolation and loneliness.
See the dogs who are available for adoption at our shelter in the Hudson Valley in New York.
Learn About Our Anti-Discrimination Work
We Change the Lives of Dogs, People, and Communities
Breed discrimination isn’t about dogs at all. At its core, it’s about discrimination against humans. We won’t stand for racism, classism, or ableism. We challenge these laws and policies with science, facts, and logic.
Correctional Facility Programs
We work with the NYC Department of Correction (DOC) to place dogs in local prisons and jails to teach both people and pets lessons in life skills.
Our grantees work to improve the shelter system, address pet-owner accessible housing concerns, and make life better for dogs and their people.
We transport dogs from open intake shelters across the country. This program reduces the number of dogs euthanized for space. Many of these dogs join our service dog program.
Our grantee Sector K9 trains shelter dogs to work in communities detecting drugs and guns. They show that “pit bull” dogs aren’t a threat to public safety, they are public safety.
