Spotlight Shelter

The Throw Away Dogs Project was created in 2014 to help mend my broken heart. At the time, I was working in a luxury pet kennel. I was shocked to see the dogs that were intentionally left at our facility and never picked up. Being a passionate dog lover, the situation for these dogs left me sad, angry, and frustrated. I wanted to find a solution for dogs that had been cast off and left behind. The majority of the dogs that were left at the facility were high intensity, yet extremely loyal. With proper training, I felt they could be turned into working dogs. I have always believed that every dog has a purpose. When matched with the right owner, they will be able to fulfill that purpose. Once Throw Away Dogs rescues a K9 it is protocol to have the dog get acclimated to the new environment. No training will begin until the dog feels comfortable and relaxed. We have found in the past with using this method, the dog is more comfortable and is more willing to want to work and learn. Introducing the dogs into a “home” environment and social atmosphere has been a very positive outcome for us. During this process the dog will be taken to the Vet for a wellness check and updated on all vaccines if necessary.After this step is completed, Throw Away Dogs will begin our training process. We will produce a “Green Dog” plus the dog will have basic obedience skills such as sit, down, stay, heel. We will also touch on starting basic recall and scent skills (the dog will NOT be imprinted).
