At Animal Farm Foundation, we work to create a world where people see beyond labels and see all dogs as individuals. We also believe in the power of the bond between dogs and people.
Our programs pair both of these beliefs and change the lives of dogs, people, and communities.
We train former shelter “pit bull” dogs as service dogs to assist people with disabilities. We carefully evaluate the dogs we select for the program. Those dogs begin learning various tasks they can perform to mitigate a person’s disability.
