Mission Statement

Enrich the lives of vulnerable teens and prepare abandoned dogs for permanent homes.

Description

K9 Youth Alliance (K9YA) partners with local youth service providers and animal shelters to bring disadvantaged teens and homeless dogs together for experience-based learning and enrichment.

K9YA students develop important life skills and build transformative bonds with their canine partners, their peers and our staff. K9YA dogs learn basic behaviors and receive much-needed socialization that reduces stress, helps them impress potential adopters and eases their transition to a permanent home.

Each program serves six teens and an average of six dogs. Program sessions run for three weeks, five days a week, two hours a day. Each program culminates in a "public" graduation ceremony, where students give a brief presentation and run their dogs through a short agility course.
