Dogs Matter

| Organization

Our Mission : To provide and promote a safe and healthy environment for dogs of recovering addicts and alcoholics

Alcoholics and addicts seeking in-patient treatment facilities have had limited options regarding the care of their pets. In many cases either they place them in an unhealthy environment or surrender them to a shelter. Dogs Matter offers a different choice. We are the only nonprofit agency to provide temporary foster care placement and supportive services specifically for dogs of addicts and alcoholics in recovery. We will take care of your best friend while you take care of yourself.

We take care of your best friend while you take care of yourself.
