Did you know that learning to train a shelter dog can help young people develop confidence and build better lives for themselves? The Underdog Project is an animal assisted therapy organisation based in Cape Town, South Africa. With your help we can reach out to more youths, one dog at a time.
Underdog addresses social and emotional needs of youths and children using non-invasive animal-assisted activities, like dog training.
The training that Underdog shelter dogs receive reduces kennel stress, prepares them for their new homes and accelerates their adoption.
We instil humane education in youths and their community, promoting responsible animal care and non-violent communities.
