Lead The Way's
Responsible Rehoming Initiative
Each year, approximately 8 million stray and unwanted animals are taken in by shelters across the country. Tragically, about 3.7 million -- nearly half -- of these animals must be euthanized because good homes cannot be found for them. A common justification – behavioral issues. For dogs, these challenges can be overcome with proper training and guidance to shelter handlers and future owners. They have the ability to become wonderful companions when placed in the care of a benevolent leader.
We do this two ways. First, by coaching our clients to discover the compelling signals our canines use to communicate and how to become compassionate leaders for them. Second by educating rescue, shelter and other nonprofit organizations’ volunteers with our leadership style, giving them the tools to train a dog once thought of as a hopeless case, a chance for hope to find a loving home.
*** In action at the Ewing Animal Shelter since April 2013!! ***
Trained dogs get - and stay - in homes!
Every Saturday, LTW holds a socialization and volunteer training class supporting the missionof finding forever homes. Our trainers teach the dogs manners, get to know them individually, and educate the volunteers with good handling and basic training skills. The trained volunteers are able to keep working with even the toughest cases until they are ready to be adopted. Upon adoption, in our program, the new families follow up with our community training classes!
If anyone wants a dog or knows someone who wants a dog PLEASE come to us! Why risk paying a ton for a purebred dog that hasn't even been born yet?
Lead The Way's collaboration with EASEL Animal Rescue League, and Paws To Heart is built on our shared non-stop commitment to the animals in our care. I can guarantee through our program you'll find a beautiful pet that needs you just as much as you need them.
To us It's not just about saving lives, it's about enriching them for both the people and puppies!!!
Responsible Rehoming is the answer!
