Bringing Dogs and People Together to End Discrimination
We’re asking dog owners to tell their stories to prove that labels and stereotypes don’t matter. What matters, are individuals.
Because all dogs are individuals, some don’t make it through our programs, but they might be a great addition to your family.
Our Programs & Anti-Discrimination Work
Changing the lives of dogs, people, and communities
Dogs and humans live so closely together and share a unique relationship. All of our services and programs are designed to include mutually beneficial roles for dogs and people.
At the core of all breed discrimination, whether laws or policies, is discrimination against humans. We won’t stand for racism, classism, or ableism. We challenge these laws and policies with science, facts, and logic.
A commitment to see
We grant funds to community organizations who share our determination to treat everyone as an individual regardless of label – that might be breed labels for dogs or it might be a label tinged with classism, ableism, or racism for a human.
Our grantees work with their communities to help improve the shelter system, keep families together, and make life better for all individuals.
All dogs and people are individuals and discrimination
People shouldn’t have to lose their pets because of discrimination. We help advocates gain access to scientific and sound information to help them fight breed-specific laws and breed restrictive housing policies so people can keep their pets.
