Each locally owned and operated DogSmith Franchise partners with a local animal shelter or rescue organization in support of the DogSmith Mission to:
- Provide professional support and training to pet dog owners.
- Support and assist humane societies, animal shelters and rescue organizations to minimize the number of unwanted animals.
- Offer affordable and professional care to family pets so that pet ownership is never a burden
The DogSmith Canine Rescue Resource Program is a two tiered approach which provides support, education and assistance to animal rescue groups and offers educational seminars and discounted training services to animal adopters.
We believe by doing this we help increase the adoptability of dogs and cats from a shelter environment, help reduce the number of animals that are returned back to the rescue organization and help prevent animals being surrendered in the first place.
