Become a Breeder

Interested in becoming a Breeder?

The paw4people®️ foundation breeds, trains, and places certified and insured Assistance Dogs (AD). These dogs are placed with individuals with physical, neurological, and/or psychological disabilities. In order to maintain an ideal stock of dogs for Assistance Dog training, the foundation maintains its own internal breeding program.

paws4people®️ seeks to place its breeder dogs with stable families who desire to become part of the paws4people family. Foster families will care for the dog as their own pet, use it in public to promote paws4people, and the foundation will be able to utilize the dog for breeding on an as-needed basis. In return, paws4people will look to these families to promote its mission and fundraise within family communities.
