Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To provide a better quality of life for dogs living outdoors and not allowed to live indoors with their families. To have dogs viewed as part of the family, not as property. To keep dogs from being abused or neglected.

Educating dog owners on responsible dog care through pamphlets/flyers, educating on community resources, and laws regarding providing basic care for their dogs. Providing free doghouses to shelter their dogs from the elements.

We partner with local animal welfare agencies such as the SPCA, and ASPCA, to educate, and provide resources such as spay/neuter, microchipping, vaccinations, and low cost vet care. We fundraise to provide insulated doghouses, and straw for the winter months.

We have been able to convince a few owners to let their dogs live indoors. We have convinced a few to surrender their dogs for adoption. We have worked with local animal welfare agencies to have a few removed due to neglect or abuse. We will continue to offer services and inform them of community resources to assure the safety and well being of each dog in our program. Failure to do so may necessitate a call to the authorities, or local animal welfare agencies for intervention.
