It's about the dogs.
Additional activities for the Foundation to meet its goals will include educational programs and outreach for Puppy Mill awareness. Our foundation is committed to the following: promoting and supporting animal awareness and education, dog training, responsible pet ownership and spay and neuter programs to help reduce the number of dogs entering shelters.
