"In life we are given opportunities to help others, and I believe it is important to take those opportunities and make the most of them.  These are a few of the causes we have taken up.  Won't you join us in helping others?  We've made it easy by accepting your donations here or by redirecting you to a cause specific website.  We are passionate about helping as a company, and we know that no amount is too small; everything makes a difference."  - Steve Kotowske, Founder Von Herder Haus Kennels, Inc. / What's Up Dog? / Pawsitive Love Foundation


Pawsitive Love Foundation

Founded by Steve Kotowske and his family to help our community and beyond.  Our mission is to place Service Dogs with Veterans and Children that are properly trained for PTSD, TBi, Mobility Assist, Autism Support, Seizure Response, and Diabetes Alert.  Pawsitive Love Foundation is a 501c(3) Charitable Organization.  Your donations are tax deductible, and go directly to the procurement, care, and training of the dogs and their people.


Walton County Animal Shelter

We adopted WCAS as our primary shelter to support some time back.  We offer them use of our Doggie Daycare facility on the first Saturday of each month so they can hold an indoor adoption event, out of the elements.
We also donate food on a regular basis.  The shelter cannot take monetary donations, but can receive food.  We can help you make a difference in the lives of many stray and/or abandoned animals by providing the opportunity to purchase a GMO Free - Corn, Soy, and Wheat Free Premium Dog Food by the bag or by the truckload at our cost.  We will then arrange delivery of the food in your name.  Get your family or your business involved in a fundraising event and make a difference!
