Our dogs play a large part in survivor assistance.
During outreach, they serve to protect the rescue teams and provide comfort to the rescue. There have been survivors so moved by our dogs, specifically Milo, that they have begged to take him into drug rehab and other activities.
During therapy, the dogs provide a cuddle and comfort that creates a secure, safe environment for women and children to unburden their stories.
Dogs also guard and secure safe houses and allow survivors to feel more comfortable in court.
We often allow survivors to adopt our dogs for their emotional support when they graduate and can show they are able to care for the dog.
Chase is playful but fierce. He loves to protect and cuddle!
Comet is a therapy and emotional support dog who loves children.
Milo is a rescue and protection dog who has served for 4 years.
Puggles is our resident Cuddler. She loves to cuddle humans of all sizes. She thinks she is a lap dog!
Paw-A-Thon | A Dogs Against Trafficking Event
The first Annual Paw-A-Thon, an in-person event, is happening May 15th, 2021 from 9AM-12PM at Citizen’s Park in Barrington, IL.
Spend time with your furry friend as you walk for a cause. Paw-A-Thon is a charitable event to support our mission and Dogs Against Trafficking ministry. Your invested interest and contribution will assist with our work of rescuing and rehabilitating survivors of human trafficking alongside our protection and therapy animals.
Our Dogs Against Trafficking program trains dogs to be sensitive companions to survivors of human trafficking. The dogs give them companionship and support as survivors make a decision to get help and break free from a life of trafficking. You can register as an individual or family! It will be a fun, family-friendly event for everyone–including your furry, four-legged family members!
