Mission

We work with area military members, and their families, who are in need of having a place for their pet while they are called up to active duty and/or sent overseas. The National Guard, Reserve Units in the Southern Maryland area are our target audience.

When a unit is called up to active service, we take care of their dogs for up to a year (with help from donations and volunteers).

It is our intention to be be working with local rescue agencies to find forever homes.  There will be training sessions for those dogs that haven’t had the opportunity to be with families. We will be providing a tranquil place for retired service animals and hope in the future to provide service animals to wounded active duty military who are in need of assistance.

All CCDS family members will be included in all areas that are provided to the Paws ‘N Play dogs. They will be exercised regularly and get to play with everyone to keep them socialized..
