The vast majority of working dogs and cats are assisted by charitable organizations and you can help as well by make a donation. Here are some of our favorites to get you started.
Military and Law Enforcement Dogs:
SaveAVet.org helps rescue and support military and law enforcement dogs after they have retired from the field
The Vest-a-Dog Network helps raise money to buy kevlar vests for active K9 constables. They don't take donations directly but here's the webpage with federal and state non-profits that do
National Education for Assistance Dog Services (NEADS) also known as Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans, provides independence to people who are deaf or have a disability through the use of canine assistance
Canine Partners for Life is dedicated to training service dogs, home companion dogs, and residential companion dogs to assist individuals who have a wide range of physical and cognitive disabilities.
Canine Companions for Independence enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support. It's a favorite of our veterinary advisor, Dr Rex Riggs, who is active with the organization
