In simple terms, Dog Scouts is a
501(c)3 non-profit organization that improves the lives of dogs, their owners, and society through humane education, positive training, and community involvement.
Through troop activities and education, we encourage our members to spend quality time with their dogs. Building a solid and happy bond with a dog has been proven beneficial to the health and welfare of both people and dogs.
People who enjoy their dog's companionship, and are able to resolve common behavior issues, tend to provide responsible care and lifelong homes for their canine friends.
It's a win-win situation for people, dogs, and the community!
In addition to building a strong and happy bond with their dogs; members of Troop 119 help in the community with some great causes...
Collectively, the troop has provided animal oxygen masks for local fire
departments, cleaned up dog waste polluting our land and water resources, picked up cans and bottles improperly discarded in our environment, and has provided annual holiday treats and toys for the dogs of Meals
on Wheels recipients.
Individually, some of our members have worked with the Salvation Army as bell ringers, visited nursing home residents, comforted patients in hospitals, painted for local charities,
found missing people through search and rescue, helped children learn to read, and welcomed visitors to a historic farmstead museum.
The Dog Scout Motto is "Let us learn new things so that we may become more helpful" and the Members of Troop 119 try to live by that motto.
