About Us

Our Mission1 - The mission of the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation is to promote the health and welfare of animals worldwide by focusing on finding foster and lifetime homes for unwanted animals, promoting humane education and treatment, and investing in research and treatment for those devastated by illness and disease.

Home titleEvery animal deserves a loving home. The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation works with Camp Bow Wow® franchisees throughout North America to provide foster care and facilitate adoptions for homeless pets. Since 2003, we have found homes for over 10,000 animals—and we plan to find forever homes for an additional 1,000 this year!  Visit your local Camp or Home Buddies website to see available pets now!

Health title - Working to find a cure for canine cancer is important to us and our clients at Camp Bow Wow®. We currently fund a yearly scholarship for a PhD research student at the world-renowned Colorado State University Animal Cancer Center. Learn more about these efforts at

Humane title - All animals have the same basic needs— food and water, shelter and love, and we believe that animals have amazing healing power for humans. Our Scout's Angels initiative is quickly growing a network of therapy dogs and their human counterparts to be deployed around the country in times of crisis or need.

The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation was established in 2007 by Camp Bow Wow® with the mission to promote the health and welfare of animals worldwide. We believe that it is our collective responsibility to care for pets of all types, because as a society we've domesticated these animals. Together we can make that a reality!
The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation is not only bettering the lives of our furry friends but people’s as well. With tragedy being part of our lives, we know how the love of an animal can help us heal. Scout's Angels was created to tap into the power of Animal Assisted Therapy, by creating a nationwide response team of Therapy Dogs to send to affected communities and help in the healing process. We’ve visited communities such as Newtown, CT and continue to grow with new Scout’s Angels team members. To learn more about the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, Click Here.
