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.

The North Carolina Department of Public Safety Juvenile Justice Division and the Guilford County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council have funded the Second Chance Program for the third year as an approved JCPC interpersonal skill building program for at-risk Guilford County youth. Without your partnership, guidance and support, Second Chance could not grow and flourish as a sustainable program providing valuable services to our community. We are humbled and grateful for all you that do.
