Power of the Pack

In the world of dog walkers, boarding facilities, and beyond, the phrase "power of the pack" resonates deeply. It's a reminder that when we come together, united by a shared purpose, incredible things can happen. It is within this concept that The Good Shepards Foundation discovers and cherishes its true calling.

But what does this power enable us to do? The answer, dear friends, is boundless. You see, the communities in need are all around us - they are our neighbors, our friends, and sometimes even ourselves. Our hearts are drawn to these individuals, and our motto becomes a guidepost for our work: WE LISTEN, WE LEARN, WE LEAD.

Building Bridges of Compassion

Through these partnerships, we envision creating innovative programs, transformative initiatives, and impactful projects that harness the healing power of the human-animal bond. Together, we can reach more hearts, touch more souls, and make the world a brighter, more compassionate place for all beings.

Impacting Communities

Senior Centers

TGSF helps seniors stay engaged emotionally and feel less lonely. While they will form friendships in their new home, nothing beats seeing TGSF Ambassadors and people who love and care for them. These visits help seniors ward off feelings of stress, social isolation, and depression as well.

At-Risk Students

Managing everyday life struggles is hard enough and it is especially difficult when you don’t have the guidance, advice and stability of a family with supportive parents. TGSF supports OC teens by introducing therapy dogs into activities to fill voids in student lives.

TGSF Ambassadors

Volunteering with The Good Shepards Foundation is a truly rewarding experience. From assisting in the care and rehabilitation of our four-legged friends to helping with community outreach programs, your dedicated involvement can bring comfort, smiles, and tail wags to those who need it most. The joy and gratitude shared by both humans and canines alike create a powerful bond that will leave a lasting impact on your heart.
