About this program

Long before Bella’s Buddies achieved 501C-3 status, Golden Rule Retrievers, LLC was training and donating dogs to veterans, active duty military families, schools, nonprofit organizations, families with terminally ill children, and families with special needs.

We have donated over $300,000 in dogs and training.

Thanks to our friends, we are now able to aim higher, train more dogs and expand our programs. 2021 will be a big year for Bella’s Buddies!

2020 Vision

In October 2019, our Board of Directors moved to outfit the metal building on the property with a training room, a simulated hospital room, a physical therapy lab, and a small apartment that can be used when out teams are working with their dogs. In February, Mr. Kirby Attwell and Nancy’s Angel Fund hosted a Capital fundraiser at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston and over $100,000 was raised to complete the renovations on the building!

Now we are just a few weeks out from completing the training facility! Kindness has been contagious in 2020! Because of friends who want to help others, we will be able to place more dogs with targeted training in 2021. Thank you to our major donors and to those whose gifts are making it possible to grow our organization and reach more veterans, more schools and more organizations.
