Paws With A Cause

  • 34 people are interested

Paws With A Cause is currently looking for volunteers to raise our future Assistance Dogs. A puppy is placed in your home at 8 weeks of age and returns to PAWS for its formal Assistance Dog training at 18 months of age. No previous training experience is necessary. Just a willingess and motivation to learn. PAWS provides weekly training classes for our Puppy Raisers and we are able to provide routine Veterinary care for the puppy at no charge to the Raiser.
