 Private School Pups is a charity whose mission is to end the euthanasia of dogs at shelters due to improper identification of a dog's needs that can be addressed with guided and/or professional training.

 "As an active volunteer within the rescue community for years, I often found myse!f wondering why dogs are euthanized or returned to shelters. With my experience, I believe a lack of education and training/or both the adopter and dog can lead to so many missed opportunities for permanent adoption. Private School Pups is

providing the funding assistance for education and training necessary for dogs and handlers desperately needed to help end euthanasia across our local shelters." - Monica Mosure, Founder
