We continue our education program, Agead with Tails, at Gerber Continuation School.  Our program meets once a week to educate the students about animal care and professions, and to give them hands on exposure to animals.  We are expanding our program to include a more in depth dog training program towards the end of the school year.  

Our therapy dog program is officially launching in January with classes to certify new teams.  In addition to visits to Joshua's House, we hope to have programs at other facilities in the Sacramento area for our teams to visit.

Our rescue, Sensative Souls, contiues to gather mementum as we prep for the opening of Joshua's House this spring.  We are informing the public of our role, asking for donations of equipment and funds, and seeking foster homes.  Interest in our program has been amazing and we are excited to launch when Joshua's House opens it doors.

We appreciate and value our supporters and contributers and look forward to sharing our progress and successes throughout the coming year.

Hello Good Sense Dogs friends and supporters.  Thanks to you we have successfully become fully vested into the GlobalGiving family.  We are now a permanant nonprofit listed on the site, able to take donations every day of the year, as well as participate in their bonus days and attract corporate sponsorships.  

In addition, the past months have been an exciting time of growth and expansion for Good Sense Dogs.  We have added a therapy dog program that will be launching soon.  Our therapy teams will not only be visiting the residents of Joshua's House, but also other facilities in the Sacramento area.  We have welcomed new volunteers to our organization, and are gaining followers and supporters every day.  

We now have a vehicle capable of pulling a trailer.  Once we reach our fundraising goal, we will begin seeking a trailer to assist us with our education and rescue programs.  This will be a huge help, and will allow us to transport multiple dogs and equipment.  Our goal is to have the at risk teens of our education program become more hands on with the training of dogs.

We appreciate you and can not offer the help we do without your support.  Have an idea to share, a way to help further, or just want more information?  Feel free to contact us!  Together we help build bridges between pets and people!
