Pets Together

Reducing social isolation and loneliness

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Pets Together gives those living in long-term care facilities the chance to stay socially connected and engaged through virtual visits with pets and their people.

Anti-Discrimination Efforts

Standing Up for Dogs and Their People

Helping to create a more accessible world

Shelter Transport

Helping Communities Across the Country

Many of the dogs we transport come from open intake shelters and run the risk of being euthanized for space. The program gives these shelters more space for other pets in need.

Correctional Facilities Programs

Developing Life Skills for a Better Future
