Giving Back to the Community
One of our core values at Safe & Hound is to find ways to give back to the community wherever possible. Each year, we partner with a local animal-focused organization to donate lightly-used collars and leashes, as well as 10% of the profits from the past quarter's sales. Our current charitable partner is Dogs with Wings.
Dogs with Wings
are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, and rely heavily on major sponsorships and donations to operate. As the organization has grown, they began their Service Dog program in 2003, Autism Service Dog program in 2007, and both the Facility Service Dog and Companion Dog programs in 2009. They are accredited by both Assistance Dogs International (ADI) and the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF), and are members of the Canadian Association of Guide & Assistance Dog Schools (CAGADS).
We chose Dogs with Wings as our charitable partner for their ongoing work both in providing impeccable care and training to the animals themselves, but also for their work to improve integration and independence for individuals with disabilities. For families who live with disabilities, acceptance and independence is priceless.
