Project Unicorn

Waco unicorns are real!

Unicorn Families have no dogs, no cats, and no kids, and are willing to commit to an 8-week structured training program to change the life of a dog that has little hope of leaving the Waco Animal Shelter alive.

A Unicorn family will spend at least 30 minutes per day for up to a week under staff supervision getting to know their Unicorn Dog. A special trainer will then bring the dog to the family’s home for a 2-hour initial visit to make a daily training plan.  Staff will check-in as well as be available 24/7 for emergencies.   

Unicorn Dogs include those that have been adopted or fostered and returned to the shelter repeatedly.  These dogs tend to be overstimulated at the shelter, causing them to show signs of fear, anxiety, stress, aggression, and frustration that make it nearly impossible to help them here.  Other dogs have issues that don’t manifest at the shelter so we can only address them in a home environment, like being protective of furniture or afraid of delivery trucks.
