Our “Private Placement” Program provides Assistance Dogs to physically or mentally challenged adolescents, spouseless seniors and disabled veterans.
These dogs, trained specifically for their new owners, may be simply companions, or service dogs, that can turn on lights and perform other specialized tasks to enhance and ease the lives of their owners. The demand for these dogs is very high and there can never be enough such dogs to meet their need in society.
How We Train Our Dogs
Operational Programs within paws4people™
The paws4people™ umbrella covers many different programs including these:
The Mission of paws4people™foundation is to enhance the lives of special and regular education students, seniors, and the seriously ill or disabled, by utilizing the “Special Powers” of canine companionship displayed by highly trained Assistance Dogs; including Service, Educational Assistance K-9s, Rehabilitative Assistance Dogs and Social Therapy dogs in specialized educational, private placements and therapeutic visitation programs.
While there are many organizations that share our goal to enhance human lives with canine love, we have found that no other training program matches the selectiveness, variety and qualifications of the paws4people™ programs. Most organizations focus on either hospitals, nursing homes, private placements or schools. Our mission’s multiple aspects are unique in providing diverse groups of citizens with a menu of programs from which they can select the one that best meets their needs.
All paws4people™ services are provided free-of-charge
