Empowering Veterans Through the Love of Dogs

A Proven Track Record

Our Partners' Successes with The Pawsitive Path Program™

You’re busy, and keeping up with the business of rescue is hard work.

So we’ve made Buddy’s Premium Care available wherever you need it: on the web, mobile web, or mobile application.


An estimated 670,000 dogs are euthanized each year, with large breeds being the most euthanized category.


About 1 out of every 150 veterans who benefit from service dogs receive them and can wait years to be paired with one.

The selective program benefits rescues and is the exclusive software that Sierra Delta, the leading company dedicated to bringing veterans and service dogs together, uses to manage their program.
