Lend a Paw to Our Canine Care Team
Our Scout’s Angels Canine Care Team supports communities in times of need by providing a healing outlet through dogs. Our Team’s first trip was to Newtown, CT, and it was amazing and heartwarming to see people affected by such a tragic event smile, laugh and even experience a few moments of joy.
Our Team embarks on their next journey for the one year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Newtown on December 14, 2013. This team will be there to support the volunteers of Sandy Hook Promise as well as the community.
The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, in partnership with Camp Bow Wow® in Greenville, SC, adopted two dogs from shelters and is training them to become certified therapy dogs. These four-legged pups will be gifted to members of the community on our anniversary trip to be part of Newtown’s healing process on a daily basis.
Please support our efforts by donating to assist with travel expenses and dog supplies so the Canine Care Team can bring comfort and smiles to the town on this overwhelmingly sad anniversary.

Camp Bow Wow, the $60 million leader in the pet care industry, in conjunction with its nonprofit organization, the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, announces the launch of “Scout’s Angels.” This philanthropic initiative will bring therapy dogs to the Newtown, Connecticut community.
The 8 person team will spend up to 2 weeks in the Newtown community doing all they can to help the survivors and their families deal with the horrible tragedy of December 14, 2012.
As a follow up, the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation is lending a paw by fundraising through its 150 pet care franchises, Camp Bow Wow and Home Buddies, to gift two therapy pups that will reside in the Newtown community for the years to come. This will certainly be a long, difficult road ahead and our hope is the dogs will spend time with trained therapists in the schools, with first responders, at community events and with the families that lost loved ones in this tragedy.
The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation has matched funds dollar-to-dollar up to $25,000 of the total funds raised for a total of $50,000! The mission of the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, Camp Bow Wow’s charity division, 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.
Founded in 2007, the Foundation has helped rescue and adopt over 10,000 pets, raised over a million dollars for canine cancer research and created various campaigns and projects to support the humane treatment of our furry friends.
