Welcome to Green Dogs Unleashed

We are a non-profit organization committed to rescuing animals in need, rehabilitating them and professionally training them to become Therapy dogs and then placing them in homes to give back to the community, We focus on the rescue, rehabilitation and training of special needs animals to work with special humans in need. All our animals are currently trained and rehabilitated at Unleashed Canine Training Academy, in Troy, Virginia.

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
