24 Paws Mission
Our goal here at 24 Paws of Love is to share our experience, strength and hope of living with six dogs in a unique situation of being separated into two packs. By sharing this reality, we hope that people will give their dogs a second chance before getting rid of them because of behavior problems and find that simple hope of, if they can do, we can do it.
We also want to show that a dog is more than a dog. They are life companions and they are a living breathing creature full of unconditional love. There is a healing power in dogs that when you tap into it, you find they are your best friend and that there is a spirit and soul just waiting for your love.
Simply put, we want every dog to have a forever home. A home where they are loved and cherished as part of the family. We'd like to share through our experience that this is possible. Every one of our dogs has an issue or problem that needs work. They range from simple training concerns to fear aggression with other dogs. We don't have it all figured out as we continue to keep learning as we go, but we talk straight from the heart about these matters. The division between the two dog packs adds to our complexity, but we continue to do our best to take care of both packs and their needs. It isn't always easy, in fact it can be very difficult and trying at times, but the rewards out weigh those difficulties because our dogs are worth it.
We hope that everyone who visits will take away a little piece of that love that they might look at their dog in a little bit different light. We want to do more than just tell a story. We want to share our experience so that others hopefully will see the value of their dogs and shed some light on the reality of this relationship between humans and canines and what it can be. There will never be any human that will be as devoted to you as your dog. Doesn't that loyalty and love deserve a wonderful home to share it with?
