All dogs and people are individuals
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.

Creating Safer environments for everyone
The K9 detection dog teams trained by our grantee Sector K9 work to create safer, more connected communities. The dogs are trained to detect guns and drugs. Some of them work in schools with the extra job of teaching kids to be better humans.
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.
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.
