Who are we?
Our rescue program is centered around using decompression, positive reinforcement, and mutual respect to rehabilitate dogs coming from abusive and neglectful situations, as well as those considered feral. Because of their histories, these dogs generally have behavioral issues causing them to appear “unadoptable” in shelters and traditional rescue settings making them susceptible to euthanasia. The HKRT process allows for the traumatized dog to take as much time as they need to adjust and become comfortable in a home setting before finding their forever family. We additionally provide fee – for – service training and rehabilitation services to families, helping to ensure dogs with special behavioral needs stay in homes with humans who feel empowered and are educated to manage any problems that may arise. With this mission, we will reduce shelter capacity, increase live release rates, and decrease the number of dogs rehomed or euthanized due to fear – based reactivity and manageable behaviors.
