HELPING PAWS OF MINNESOTA INC

Helping Paws is a non-profit in Hopkins, MN that raises and trains service dogs for individuals with physical disabilities, and veterans and first responders affected by PTSD.

Our volunteer dog trainers (Foster Home Trainers) take puppies from our breeding program into their homes for 2.5 years while attending weekly dog training classes. You do not need to have prior dog training experience; we provide all the dog training for free.

Once your foster dog completes their service dog training, they go on to become a service dog for one of our applicants in need. Our volunteer dog trainers are giving someone a life-changing gift!
