Our Mission
Our Mission

Life of Riley, a program of Spring Point Partners, envisions a world where all dogs are bred under humane conditions and acquired through pet-friendly means. We provide support to organizations and bring together stakeholders with diverse perspectives and expertise to create lasting solutions for complex animal welfare problems that involve:

  • Educating and empowering consumers to make humane choices;
  • Encouraging strong animal welfare policies at the local and national levels; and
  • Helping humane dog breeders and other humane businesses succeed in the marketplace.
