More Dogs Trained is More Lives Saved - Provide those who serve with the hope of a strong future through trained dogs placed as companions, Emotional Support, or Service Dogs.
Provide tools to assist with mental health and stability. We want our clients to have a feeling of security and empower them to live their best life. We place rescue dogs, donated dogs, and those from our breed for purpose program with a worthy veteran, first responder, or gold star family.

Established in December 2016. Operating in the United States and Canada is a team united by the love for dogs and passion to support those that serve and protect us; eligible veterans, first responders, and gold star families of both nations. Each of us has been affected deeply by PTSD in one way or another. Many of our clients volunteer with Paws and Warriors to pay it forward understanding personally how much hope and healing comes with a furry companion.
To achieve the mission we need the financial stability to allow us to provide a regular stream of dogs quickly and ethically for applicants. Funding limits the number of clients we can serve. Many of our clients see us as their last and only hope. The average cost of most service dog programs is $25,000 - 30,000 and the average waiting period is 2-3 years.
The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates the current statistic value of one life to be $7.4 million. For a micro fraction of that value, Paws and Warriors can provide a dog before a Veteran, First Responder, or Gold Star family member quits fighting. When we train a rescue or donated the dog to be a service dog we are also providing the dog with a job, a purpose. We are producing ambassadors that can educate the public and community on how important it is to respect the role of a working service dog and invisible wounds can be healed too.
Paws and Warriors is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, founded by LaVonne Bower, after learning firsthand the effects that therapy dogs can have on Veterans with PTSD, TBI, and or physical injuries.
