Meet Duchess, the CourageousK9 who works tirelessly to help wild animals by protecting livestock. She comes from a long line of Livestock Guardian Dogs that keep livestock safe and help bears, coyotes, owls, hawks and other predators remain wild and free.
Duchess proudly guards the flocks of sheep and pigs on her home farm in Ontario, which offers abundant wildlife habitat. She is attentive and on duty, living with the sheep and pigs who are part of her family. By ensuring her charges stay out of harm’s way, the wildlife who also call her farm home stay free-roaming. With coyotes and bears as neighbors, Duchess is a key partner in proactive, co-existence activities that mean both domestic animals and wildlife can thrive! Because of Duchess, her farm is 'wildlife-friendly.’
However, her work among wild animals makes her more susceptible to illness and injury. We need YOUR help to keep Duchess healthy and safe. Every year, Duchess' family pays above average for preventative health care and illness and injury. By supporting Duchess' medical costs, we will ensure that she and the coyotes, bears, hawks, owls and other predators who call her farm home stay safe.
You can help. Your urgent support will ensure that Duchess and other brave dogs like her can ensure wildlife-livestock co-existence. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go to support Livestock Guardian Dogs like Duchess.
CourageousK9s, a program of GreaterGood.org, is committed to supporting dogs working to protect people and the planet. These brave dogs are trained specifically to help children, veterans, victims of violence, those with disabilities, and in cases of disaster; as well as protect habitat and save wildlife. We partner with organizations utilizing animal's unique intelligence, innate senses, and individual willingness and desire to work to achieve goals that humans may not be able to accomplish without them.
