P.A.W. Service Dogs


There is no greater joy than to make a fundamental difference in someone's life.

Creating Positive Experiences

Focusing on one dog, one individual, one family and one moment at a time creates positive outcomes. Whether it’s providing comfort at a children’s hospital or enabling an individual to eat at a restaurant, P.A.W. Service Dogs is improving lives every day.

Service Dogs

Procurement of our first pups is just around the corner. We will keep everyone updated on their status and begin creating new outlooks on life as soon as possible!

Therapy Dog Program

Our Therapy Dog Program will be the number one way of giving back to the community. Specially trained Therapy Dogs and their volunteer handlers will visit local events, hospitals, schools and nursing homes.

Psychiatric Assistance

Our Psychiatric Service Dogs will be trained and provided to individuals suffering from mental illnesses such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, sexual trauma, or traumatic brain injury.

Autism Assistance

Besides occasionally selecting pups for wheelchair and mobility assistance, our primary focus on procurement of dogs will be for Autism Service Dogs. These angels will be provided for children between the ages of 6-12.

Wheelchair & Mobility Assistance

Wheelchair and Mobility Assistance Service Dogs will assist individuals suffering from a number of different disabilities to create a newfound independence.
