The mission of Extraordinary Dogs Inc. is to provide rescued "death row" dogs with the skills and training to help them become extraordinary canine friends for life to their adopted family. We are a training and enrichment facility first and work solely with dogs rescued from high-kill facilities.

Primary Programs:

Provide for the rescue, foster care, training, rehabilitation/retraining as needed, and adoption of homeless animal companions, including but not limited to dogs, cats and other animals in kill shelters as means may permit, Use progressive and innovative training to showcase the talents and benefits of shelter dogs for the accomplishment of specific tasks including and not limited to service, therapy, search and rescue, and film industry. Place trained or rehabilitated pets with suitably matched adopters.

Other Programs:

Provide educational programs, seek out financial support, provide coaching/training, and consultation to pet owners to encourage retention of companion animals in the home in order to reduce the euthanasia rate of healthy animals in high kill shelters.
