Pawgress aspires to reduce the number of animals in shelters by providing pets and their guardians with the necessary education to live and behave as responsible citizens in their homes and community.

Through targeted and customized training, community partnerships, and public programs and policy initiatives, Pawgress aims to foster a social responsibility between pet and property owners, while simultaneously reducing a burden on our shelters and saving the lives of millions of animals in the process. 

Rusty Barnes, Founder of Pawgress
