We believe that every dog is worthy of a quality life filled with exercise, enrichment, and a forever family to love them regardless of their physical abilities.
Due to the nature of the work we do, the dogs in our care stay with us longer than the typical rescue dog. Our vetting and diagnostic process is extremely thorough and we spend a lot of time with each case to understand the dog in his or her totality, taking into account all aspects of their mental and physical well-being. Dogs that enter the Be Like Josh Foundation serve as ambassadors of our message which is that regardless of where we sit on the spectrum of abilities, all animals (and people) are worthy of love, respect and belonging. Our goal is to challenge the ableist mindset that discriminates against neurological differences to create a more compassionate and deeper understanding for all beings who exist in the world.
