Green Dogs is a non-profit organization committed to rescuing animals in need, rehabilitating them, and professionally training them to become therapy dogs. They will be placed in their forever loving homes to bring compassion full-circle.
GDU focuses on the rescue, rehabilitation, and training of special needs animals who are trained to work with special humans in need.
Compassion Animals On Parade has four goals:
- To bring the essence of the Green Dogs Unleashed Therapy Dog Program to downtown Charlottesville.
- To raise awareness and funding for the life saving work of GDU.
- To support the wonderful local businesses downtown.
- To honor the incredible artists who have donated their time to paint the Compassion Animals for GDU.
