About D.O.G.S.

Jasmine and Leche, Rescue Dogs, Inspiration for D.O.G.S.Dogs Of A Good Society, "D.O.G.S." for short, started with a dream and wishful thinking from MyLy Fung, Founder/President. The original vision for D.O.G.S. was an animal rescue to help as many dogs as possible. However, after much thought, a new and exciting idea came about, which is to help already existing rescues and shelters. To be a lending hand to those organizations who already do 'rescuing' so well.

Not until recently did D.O.G.S. start its physical path as a new organization, working to obtain a non-profit 501c3 status. D.O.G.S. was inspired by the Founder's own rescue dogs, Leche and Jasmine (both Pitbull/German Sherpard/Lab mixes). Growing up with dogs and loving animals from an early start are the reasons for her passion for dogs and animals today. D.O.G.S.'s Board Members all share the same compassion for animals and the motivation to lend a voice to the "voiceless". We believe that dogs are one of the most loyal, unconditional, forgiving, happy, loving, and innocent creatures on this earth. Every member here at D.O.G.S. would like to assist in protecting and rescuing these and other beautiful creatures.

We invite you to follow us through this journey and vision. Thank you for your support!
