RAISE the WOOF! Help Open the Canine Cafe in San Francisco, the Bay Area's 1st Dog Cafe and Playspace! DRINK-PLAY-ADOPT-SHOP (All donations to this non-profit project are tax-deductible. THANK YOU for caring, donating and sharing!!)

The NextGen Shelter Project is a non-profit project focusing on delivering 2 new animal shelter models which began as a rescue program for at-risk shelter dogs and cats in New Mexico 6 years ago this January under the name New Mexico Pets Alive. We are now laying the foundation to help a much larger number of homeless dogs and cats across America as well as helping the people who care about them. In addition, we are launching a job training/placement program (areas include retail, marketing, management, animal care and dog training) and expanding upon a successful pilot program with non-violent offenders to help reduce recidivism in cities across the country with the help of shelter dogs.  

Our 1st small scale new shelter model for homeless dogs is the Canine Café and our first 4 start-up locations will be in Albuquerque, New York City, San Diego and San Francisco

This fundraiser is raising funds to cover our San Francisco location start up costs, including licenses, permits, insurance, deposits, initial rent and utilities and our location build out/construction. Our doggie day care and public playgroups program for dogs who already have homes along with our coffee and beverage sales and our other retail sales covers operations: all the costs of getting the pups and dogs we help from homeless to happily ever after.

The Canine Cafe is the 1st non-profit dog café/animal shelter model for homeless dogs that helps to find loving homes for a minimum of 1500 puppies and dogs each year. It is also the 1st dog adoption center with Job Training and Economic Development initiatives. The goal for the San Francisco location is to find homes for a minimum of 3,000 puppies and dogs each year. The cage-free, doggie day care like setting paired with comprehensive adoption prep programs successfully cares for the whole dog (physically, emotionally and mentally) thereby reducing stress while increasing their social skills, health and well-being. It also helps increase successful adoption matches when potential adopters are able to visit with dogs that have completed our adoption prep program and see who they really are - their true personalities shine in this happy and social environment!

Overall, the Canine Café model means MORE LIVES SAVED, HAPPY SHELTER STAFF and VOLUNTEERS and most certainly HAPPY DOGS!

At the Canine Cafe, visitors sip delicious coffee and other beverages while enjoying time with adoptable dogs. Some people are unable to welcome a companion animal into their lives. For them and the dogs, their time spent together provides mutual health benefits for the mind, body and spirit. For those considering adding a dog to their family, potential adopters are able to observe the dogs' energy levels, playstyles and behaviors in a more natural environment to begin to learn about each individual dog in front of them. This assists in facilitating successful adoption matches and reducing return rates for shelter dogs.

For shelter dogs, once they leave the stress of traditional shelter environments and enter our program they begin to receive information that helps them to think, build confidence and increase social skills. They also receive the people and dog social time they need to prevent distress and learn better social skills and increase their overall health. The Canine Cafe is the last step in their adoption prep to help them go from homeless to happily ever after. 

The Canine Cafe team includes an ever growing number of animal care professionals, designers, volunteers, fosters, individual donors and business sponsors who are pledging their time, talents, expertise and financial contributions toward ensuring the success of this next generation of whole animal care animal sheltering in America. We invite you to JOIN US as a SUPPORTER of THIS PROJECT at any donation level you wish via this campaign.

THANK YOU for HELPING US to RAISE the WOOF and help more people and dogs ASAP!
