Standing Up for Dogs and Their People
Dogs don’t understand discrimination, but their humans do. Breed-specific legislation and policies negatively affect how people live their lives. When it comes to the rights of dog owners to protect their pet from illegal seizure or to find housing, or the rights of those who rely on a dog for equal access, we take action.

We train our service dogs based on their individual potential to do specific types of service work. We match each dog with a person with disabilities based on personality, lifestyle, and the dog’s skill set.
