The mission of Diamonds in the Ruff of Virginia, Inc. (DITR) is to bring dogs in need together with the people that need them most.

We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that gives shelter dogs opportunities to become invaluable life partners to individuals and families impacted by disability through one of our three mission pathways: Emotional Support & Companion Dogs, Therapy Dog Candidates, or Service Dog Candidates.
