Pawtastic Friends was built with the goal of providing training programs to shelter dogs. With our staff of trainers and volunteers, we are giving dogs in need the skills and guidance to help them transition to their furever home. Your donation will provide basic training, aqua-therapy, or advanced training to a dog who is accepted into our program. You have gotten them one step closer to their happily ever after!

My life was turned upside down….
I’m Matai, a three year old, Shar-Pei mix. My family lost their home during Covid and I found myself in rescue, homeless and alone. I went from having a loving family, going to the park, playing with my furry friends to feeling lost, confused, and living behind bars.
It was too much for me. I became depressed, and untrusting. I was not out of my kennel for months and I began to shutdown. My spirit and heart were broken. Too be honest, I wasn’t sure I would survive.
But, I was moved to another boarding facility. I met my best friend Nicole. She took me under her wing, and gave me a reason to trust and hope again. I started school at Pawtastic Friends and my teacher Keith has given me a platform to learn and have fun with agility and puzzles. I’ve mastered the basics and even know some tricks.
The volunteers love on me, take me to the park, cook me chicken, and treat me to pupacinos.
I wish it could last forever and I never had to go back to boarding. I need a hero, someone who will be patient and committed to helping me continue to build confidence and trust.
I would do best in an adult home since I’m still learning to trust and have sensitivity around my neck with collars and leashes I can live with other dogs with a proper meet and greet. In fact, I have a furry girlfriend at the park, who I love.
Please share my story so that I can get my happily ever after.

Here at Pawtastic Friends, we are committed to a single goal:
we strive to make the world a better place for homeless animals. We are a private,
non-profit organization that is dedicated daily to providing training programs to homeless dogs. With your generosity and donations, together we can achieve these goals.
Through the opportunity to participate in the Pawtastic Friends Enrichment Training Scholarship Programs, our goal is to prepare homeless dogs for adoption when they find their furever homes. In the interim, we provide toys, food, medical care and supplies to help bring them comfort and love until they are adopted.
Thank you for being a furbaby hero today!
