Addison Dogs
Ms. Penny
A community pawing it forward.

Why We're Here

In 2002 a group of people got together with something in common, they all had dogs with Addison's Disease. They also shared a common interest in improving upon the wellness for the whole dog including body, mind and spirit through a variety of means such as conventional medications, alternative therapies, diet and exercise. They desired a place were they could share information, provide support to others and also "pay it forward," the knowledge they had gained from experience.

Through great effort of volunteers, AddisonDogs a 501(c)(3) non-profit organazation was born.
