Mission Statement

Dedicated to creating opportunities for independence for people with disabilities with the gift of a task-trained service dog and to enhancing the human-animal bond

Description

Four Paws and a Wake Up-NC began with a dream and today the dream continues. Working in the service dog industry for nearly 25 years, a change necessitated an evaluation of lifetime goals and the deep desire to continue to serve others. Having met the Founder of Four Paws and a Wake Up, my wife and I agreed to mentor her in the service dog industry. Little did we know the decision to mentor would result in a new endeavor.

‚Äč Four Paws and a Wake Up-NC operates as an independent chapter incorporated in North Carolina, with an employer identification number and tax-exempt status unique to the North Carolina site.
