Donate to help us expand our reach and connect with more kids

Paws up if you want to help vulnerable youth find radical self-acceptance and love

When we nurture children and young adults, our communities thrive. Your continued support ensures that the most vulnerable youth in our community can tap into the healing power of dog therapy and access the social, emotional and behavioral tools they need to break down barriers and spark meaningful connections with dogs, their humans and each other.
