The Blue Heeler Foundation is a San Diego based 501(c)(3) public charity started in March of 2019. Our mission is simple: provide temporary homes for Australian Cattle Dogs as well as teaching young teens and kids the value of caring for animals and learning business operations through running a small non-profit company.
The Blue Heeler Foundation is committed to helping young adults reach their dreams of higher education. We maintain a scholarship fund to provide scholarships throughout the year to college-bound, high school seniors.
Here at The Blue Heeler Foundation we have a diverse team of Heelers (Australian Cattle Dogs), Australian Shepards and many more breeds of dogs and humans to help us accomplish our goals. We are always expanding our team and making sure we have the most qualified puppers to keep our organization up and running. We have the best team around… paws down. Check out the Team page for more team members.
Founder & CEO Jay grew up in the Skool of Hardknocks. Having moved around a lot as a pup he understands the value of and need for being loved and part of a community. He has extensive experience in herding, nipping heels (what he is known for) and running non-stop. His goal is to make sure all puppers and humans have a great home to share with an amazing family.
Chief Liaison for Blue & Red Heeler Affairs Jay met Sierra, a Blue/Red Heeler mix, while shopping at his local San Diego cooperative grocer. Her worldly travels have brought her all around the country. She now joins our team as the main liaison between all our Blue Heelers, Red Heelers and fellow puppers around the globe.
