DIG GIVES BACK
An important part of Dog is Good’s mission is to be a force for good.
We have worked with numerous animal shelters and other pet-related non-profits, donated to auctions, designed custom products to help raise funds and donated cash 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 “Charity Partners.”
Warrior Canine Connection is a nonprofit organization which utilizes a Mission Based Trauma Recovery model to help recovering Warriors reconnect with life, their families, their communities, and each other. By interacting with the dogs as they move from puppy-hood to training to adult service dogs, Warrior Trainers benefit from a physiological and psychological animal-human connection. As a result of their efforts, Veterans with disabilities receive the finest in trained service dogs.
Freedom Service Dogs is a nonprofit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by rescuing dogs and custom training them for individual client needs. Clients include children, veterans and active duty soldiers, and other adults.
