One Good Turn Deserves Another
What exactly is a Karma Dog? A Karma Dog is a special dog who was rescued after others had given up on them. Karma Dogs appreciate the kindness that people have shown to them and now want to give back to the community that helped them. Our Karma Dogs are specially trained therapy dogs who love to be around people and give comfort and support wherever they can.
Karma Dogs don't work alone.
