Our Dogs Change Kids' Lives.
We are a non-profit AND an Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization!
This means your donations are tax deductible and for Arizona taxpayers, your support can mean a dollar-for-dollar income tax credit of up to $800 for couples and $400 for individuals.
We start with puppies of all shapes and sizes, and grow them into highly skilled working dogs. They partner with professionals to help kids with autism, behavioral challenges, down syndrome and cerebral palsy overcome obstacles and reach important life goals.
