Our Core Values:

IntegrityWe will do what we say, we will be accountable for our actions, and we will strive to make decisions that are equitable and in the best interest of individuals (people and dogs) and the community.

Service to othersWe recognize our work is to help others live healthier and happier lives and to build a stronger community – it is not self-serving.

KnowledgeWe will strive to be the ‘subject matter experts’ by staying abreast of changes in laws, perceptions, and best practices for training service, therapy, companion, and other assistance dogs.

CommunicationWe will share information and ideas, and maintain transparency of our organization’s operational, programmatic and financial status.

TeamworkWe embrace that success is dependent on people/dogs working together for their mutual benefit, and that greater good is achieved by people working together rather than independently – both internally within the organization and externally with others in the community.

CollaborationWe recognize that greater good is best achieved by working together with others – individuals, groups, organizations, etc.

RespectWe appreciate and honor donor’s intention, differing points of view, people’s individuality, for dogs, for the relationship between people and their dogs.
