Our Story

Our story began August 2018 by our founder, Felicia Jones, who had recently suffered a tragic loss of her dog Koda. Koda was shot and killed at her residence by a local deputy responding to home alarm that was accidentally triggered.  As our founder went through a tough time grieving her sweet Koda, she decided to turn this incident into an impactful organization to help protect other dog owners from going through what she went through and possibly save other dogs from these types of incidents that involve officer shootings.

Protect your pups through awareness.

One of the simplest ways to prevent a law enforcement officer from becoming startled by your pets when visiting your home is to submit a form to the local police department letting them know your home has pets.
