New Atlanta Animal Welfare Nonprofit Focuses on Dog Training:
High-quality and free dog training classes for communities in need
Baltimore, MD. (November 26, 2021) – New Atlanta nonprofit BraveHeart Pets is Tim Freeman’s dream to fuel his passion for dog training while sharing his talent with his community. A dog trainer by trade, Freeman will offer free or affordable dog training to Atlanta area pet owners who can least afford it.
Freeman has been working to support people and pets in Atlanta his entire life. His new nonprofit is being funded through a startup grant from Spring Point Partners, Life of Riley, the animal welfare initiative of Spring Point Partners. “We invest in leaders, networks, and solutions that power community-driven change. Braveheart Pets creates space for the community to develop sustainable, transformative systems to support people and pets,” says James Berwind, Director of Life of Riley.
When it comes to dog training skills, one of Freeman’s famous quotes is “Don’t blame them, train them.” Freeman has received multiple awards for his work. He is a champion of positive reinforcement when it comes to dog training. “Tim is proof you can have a professionally trained dog without using fear to dictate behavior,” says Nick Walton, National Shelter Support Manager at Best Friends Animal Society.
“Tim may be a dog trainer, mechanic, public speaker by trade, but at his core, Tim is a beacon of light and a gift to his community,” says Kenny Lamberti, Chief Engagement Officer at Companions and Animals for Reform and Equity (CARE).
CARE is assisting with funding, mentorship, and supplies to help Freeman’s new nonprofit, which will now officially become a CARE Center partner.
Mike Bricker, Director of CARE Centers, says behavior issues are one of the main reasons dogs are surrendered to shelters. “With Braveheart Pets, everyone in the community will have access to high-quality and free dog training classes. People want to keep their pets and Tim is going to help them do that.”
Freeman is thrilled to be able to do things he is truly passionate about. “My overall objective is to teach and coach millions of people around the world, about the ways to live a harmonious life with their companion animal. Hopefully, they’ll learn a thing or two about themselves along the way as well.”
