hat our kids program is all about

Dogs and kids ... a perfect match!  
Through our fostering and puppy training programs kids learn how to care for and train dogs.  In the process they develop responsibility, self-esteem, confidence, and appreciation for other living things.  Our hope is to contribute to a population of compassionate and caring future adults, as well as help teach the world the value of these wonderful creatures.

 The Dogs Can Change A Child's Life Forever



Nancy started fostering, training and performing with homeless puppies at age 12.   At age 14 she has helped 30 puppies that would otherwise be euthanized, or placed without proper socialization and training  and eventually returned because no one took the time to help the new family to socialize and train their adopted dog. Our program offers low cost training for the adoptive families to continue the necessary socialization and training. Nancy is now an apprentice trainer for other kids.





Let's teach our youth to love the animals and the animals will teach our youth to love all unconditionally!





Elizabeth felt alone until she met DB Cooper who needed someone to care enough to train him so he could be adoptable.  Elizabeth felt needed, loved, appreciated and successful.  Our kids need to feel they have something of value to offer.

Families benefit from the love of a new puppy!



After Save A Dog & Kids gave this new puppy 3 sets of shots/dewormings, microchip, neuter, crate training, socialization with cats, dogs, kids, strangers and started him on obedience training, his family told everyone it was worth flying him out to their home and getting such a perfect family pup.  His mom continued regular socialization at doggie day care, continued obedience training for the past two years and now feels that he would make a great Therapy Dog. Angela thinks of Tau as her son.  Congratulations Angela!  Your hard work really paid off.

Paint our Deaf Little Therapy dog

Puppy Graduation 2003 Click on Cassie and Paint our Deaf Puppy

 


Paint would have been put down at 8 weeks by his breeder because he was deaf. We knew he was special and with hand signal training he could bring lots of love to many.  Cassie accomplished her Baccalaureate Community Program Requirements for school, and gave Paint a chance to learn what he would need to be safe.

I am currently working on setting up a therapy program for our probation kids to train dogs.  I am trying to do some research about how to set up the program and would love to get the opportunity to speak to you about your program.  Is there a time you would be available to speak to me about your program?  I look forward to speaking to you.

What a perfect match: Kids and Dogs!

1.  Were you aware that donations for Charity 
and Youth Programs since 2002 are so low that not only food, clothes and necessities are needed, but all After School Programs for Homeless and Underprivileged kids have been cut.  
Federal research on Anti-gang, Anti-drugs, Anti-violence and Anti-juvenile delinquency 
states that the most successful deterrents are After School Programs with positive activities for kids.  Kids commit most of the crimes during the hours after school.  Help us bring positive activities to the underprivileged kids at Various Youth Programs /YMCA After School Program, Utah Youth Detention Centers and other youth facilities of Utah.

Donations, volunteers and sponsors are desperately needed. 
 

"A HUMANE EDUCATION TODAY, YIELDS A MORE COMPASSIONATE SOCIETY TOMORROW"

2. The FBI and ASPCA Research shows that not only do serial killers, domestic violence, and child abuse cases have a history of animal abuse, but that the teens involved in the high school shootings also had a history of animal mutilation and abuse.  In the ASPCA 2000 magazine, each case of high school shootings documented these important warning signs in the killers' background:

 

"Columbine High School...12 classmates and one teacher were killed....a climactic episode of more than two years of school violence... were there any warning signs?"

Yes there were very obvious warning signs.  All the kids involved in school shootings had a history of animal abuse.  Some wrote about it in their journals: "  I beat our family 
Lab with a baseball bat, and set him on fire.... it was a thing 
of beauty."  UPDATE 04-14-03 Another High School Shooting in New ORleans.  We need to give kids positive activities to teach them compassion instead of violence.

If we want to stop the violence and give all kids a sense of compassion for life, we must teach them that compassion through positive activities.  In our program kids learn compassion, responsibility, self esteem, confidence and service through helping train and care for homeless puppies.  Maybe we can prevent kids from becoming violent by teaching them compassion for life. They learn the benefits of positive praise and the rewarding satisfaction of training a helpless puppy.  They gain confidence, self esteem and many more values by performing with their trained pups which will help them in their lives.

Stewart's new family not only took our 6 week training which he excelled at, but took the therapy dog test and passed.  He is not only picking up the kids from school with mom, sleeping on his little girl's bed every night, but visiting kids in the hospital.  And to think that his original owner threw him away at 3 years old after he spent 3 years abandonned in his dog run year-round,  and called us to take him after he no longer could stud him out to breed.  (He had the dullest coat and seizures when he was given to us by his owner, and with his new loving family that keeps him indoors, he has had absolutely no seizures and is shiny and healthy).
