Dog-Harmony is a volunteer-ran non-profit organization. We're a group of passionate and determined problem-solving dog lovers who want to make a difference. Our goal is to build healthy relationships between humans and dogs to improve the lives of both. The basis for these relationships is knowledge and the key is education, for all ages. By providing personalized training, education, and ongoing support we help owners and dogs grow together in adoptions that last a lifetime. Adoption isn't the end result, it's just the beginning.
We advocate selecting an appropriate dog through rescue organizations and animal shelters. Shelters can provide a wide range for selection, however, it's easy to react emotionally and select a dog that's not a match for an owner's lifestyle, family, or home. Sadly, many adopted dogs are returned to shelters and rescues due to the mismatching of dog and owner. We help people avoid this with our matchmaking process. It can be a difficult process of choosing the right dog, we initially remove the emotional emphasis and hand-hold people through from start to finish so it's enjoyable, the way adoption is meant to be experienced for owner and dog.
Ultimately, our goal is to match the right home with the right dog. Read more and get involved.
