Each year we raise, train and place service, support and therapy dogs to children and veterans with physical, neurological and developmental disabilities. Our dogs are provided at NO COST to the recipient, which places the responsibility of raising the needed funds on our organization.
Not every puppy will be suited to the demands of service work, but at PAWS, every dog can find a job. In addition to our assistance dogs, we offer support and facility dogs which promote healing and happiness in various settings. We have 4-5 programs for the community.
The mission of PAWS Assistance Dogs is to promote independence and enhance quality of life for veterans and children with special needs through life-changing partnerships with skilled assistance dogs, and to educate and serve local communities through the use of highly trained therapy dogs. PAWS is a visible, respected and sustainable organization that creates meaningful and lasting impacts for recipients while making lasting contributions in benefit of our community.PAWS Assistance Dogs, Inc. is recognized as a nonprofit Public Charity under IRS Code 501(c)(3). All donations are tax deductible as allowed under Federal Law.
