An important part of Dog is Good’s mission is to be a force for good. This is why we created the Dog is Good for Good Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non profit that helps dogs, helping people.

Dog is Good for Good knows the power of the human- dog bond. For both, this partnership improves the health and well-being of the human as well as the dog. As we emerge from a year of incredible human challenges due to a global pandemic that has contributed to job loss, food insecurity, and isolation. Ever-changing work environments, and a dependency on the continuity of technology to support remote learning, work, and sustain friendships, dogs might be more essential than ever before as they have been a source of companionship, joy, and calm.

The Foundation’s mission is to create awareness and provide grants to organizations whose programs highlight the power of the dog-human bond and the positive benefits each has on the other.

We have worked with numerous animal shelters, therapy organizations, and other pet-related non-profits,  in pursuit of this ideal. Each year, Dog is Good reaches out to dozens of organizations and is also aligned with a couple of larger partner organizations. We invite you to join our community and learn more about our initiatives.
