Serving Veterans & First Responders from all Branches of the Military & Social Services – Thank you for your service!

For the men, women and families who selflessly serve our country in the military and first response, the transition and life out of the military can be a tough one. Some are missing limbs or suffering from other physical disabilities. Others struggle with PTSD, thoughts of suicide, and the various forms of mental and physical disabilities associated with military and first response services.

Research has shown that therapy animals provide help and support to returning soldiers in countless ways. The VA even offers pet therapy programs because they recognize the benefits. However, those programs are limited only to VA hospitals. The visits can be quite random and sporadic.

While Veterans can be eligible to obtain a Service Dog, the waiting list is incredibly long, and the cost can be prohibitive. Not all Veterans require a Service Dog but would benefit from their own therapy dog.

The PaWs MISSION is to provide those who served our country with hope of a strong future through the adoption of rescue animals, training, and a support network .  All the while, help animal shelters who are overwhelmed in finding their dogs and cats find a good home to a worthy veteran.
The PaWs VISION is to reduce suicide rates of veteran, first responder, and gold star families, through the adoption of rescue animals as companion, emotional support, or service dogs.

  2. Hello I met you at the airport waiting line to check in, my name is Megan, and I really wanted to take up your offer. Although I am not a veteran I have very severe social anxiety and panic attacks. So I honestly think an ESA would be a huge help to me.

    If you see this comment please reply to it.

    1. Hello Megan,

      We actually have numerous members of our organization, do you happen to remember the name of the person you spoke to? I will direct this message to them.

      Thanks!
      Karen
