People Helping Dogs. Dogs Helping People.
Our programs interrupt the cycle of a growing number of youth that are lost, falling behind and slipping away into a future of isolation, drugs, gang membership and incarceration. Their future, like that of over half of the dogs in our community, is one of abandonment and desperation – and for the dogs – premature death by euthanasia.
Our experience has shown us that at-risk youth, working with non-judgmental canine partners and caring adults, can open their hearts and minds and accept help to change the trajectory of their lives.
PP4H kids begin their personal journey experiencing trust, acceptance, compassion and love, all with the help of a dog…. Giving each a chance at life. Welcome to People & Paws 4 Hope. Help us help our youth and our dogs. Together we’re better.
