New TADSAW Sponsor!

We have partnered with Back 40 Dogs this year. Their focus is to provide premium working supplements for working dogs that builds their immunity, strengthens every dogs’ mind and body, and promotes their longevity. We know how hard service dogs work for us, so this is a great match for our organization. Check out their website for these supplements, and remember proceeds go back to TADSAW!
