About Us Dog Soccer Toes vs Teeth
The Soccer Dogs are on a Mission to connect the soccer world with the dog rescue world. Soccer playing dogs have tremendous value to soccer lovers. There are huge demands and no supply of soccer-playing dogs, until now. A Soccer Dog Team is leading the way to help ball motivated rescue dogs to find a home in a soccer-loving family.
High energy ball motivated rescue dogs can be difficult to adopt because of their high energy needs however they often make great soccer dogs. Soccer is a perfect activity for high energy dogs because they receive a physical and mental workout on a daily basis which helps them become calm, obedient, happy dogs. There are many potential Soccer Dogs in local dog rescue facilities.
Soccer Dog Adoption Program
The Soccer Dog Adoption Program (SDAP) is a fundraising program for dog rescue organizations and for foster families. 90% of an elevated adoption fee goes to the foster or rescue and 10% to SDO or SoccerDogs.Org for managing the program.
Soccer playing dogs are peers to service dogs because of their soccer skills and they can have tremendous value making them a fundraiser for anyone interested in identifying them in the rescue system.
After the Potential Soccer Dogs are adopted to a soccer-loving home, they can be trained to play Dog Soccer at public, private, and corporate events earning revenue for their family. SDO will be their employment agent helping the Soccer Dogs get booked at events to play Dog Soccer.
10 AM on Saturday Morning is soccer dog time at your local dog rescue facility or at a public event in a city near you.
During the week Dog Soccer is played at elementary schools, libraries, assisted living facilities. Weekends Dog Soccer is played at fairs, festivals, public, private, and corporate events. Email to book Dog Soccer Games at your event!

Why Does SDO Do This Work?
According to the American Humane Society, roughly 64 percent of the 4.3 million animals that entered “kill” shelters were euthanized — approximately 2.7 million animals in just 1,000 shelters out of an estimated 3,500 throughout the country.
Many of these animals are euthanized due to overcrowding but countless numbers lose their lives because of medical problems that could be treated. Sadly, only 25 percent of dogs and 24 percent of cats that enter animal shelters are adopted.
