Connecting kids & dogs to unleash their potential!

We provide vulnerable children with life-changing relationships with dogs that improve their health and welfare by increasing their self-esteem, confidence and empathy, and lowering their stress and anxiety levels. In our Paws to READ® program the benefits of these relationships allow children to not only improve their reading comprehension and skill, but to learn to love to read.
