About DGE

DoggoneExpress, Inc. was founded in 2006 to provide training and transporting services to shelters and rescue groups in South Louisiana.

A few of our programs include:

Our Mission

Saving Paws and Saving Souls®

Doggoneexpress is a 501(c)3 corporation created to assist non-profit, no-kill rescue groups and organizations to promote animal welfare. Our mission is to establish programs in correctional facilities and juvenile detention centers across Louisiana for both basic training and service dog training, to pass spay and neuter laws, and to help provide transport to all shelters and parish agencies in south Louisiana for adoptions and evacuations. 



The concept for training dogs by inmates is based on similar programs in California, Colorado, and Florida. Our program, which began in 2011, is modeled after Pathways to Hope, the first program of this kind, formed by Sister Pauline Quinn in California in 1985. Positive reinforcement training will be used in all of our training in all of our programs.
