Mission Statement

OFFERING HOLISTIC AND THERAPEUTIC SUPPORT FOR SUFFERERS OF EATING DISORDERS. CELEBRATING THE HEALING POWER OF ANIMALS AND RESCUING ANIMALS IN NEED.

Description

Eating disorders, which have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, impact more than thirty million Americans of all ages and backgrounds. Yet nine out of ten people struggling with clinically significant eating disorders never ask for help. Why?

1) Eating disorder treatment is costly and therefore inaccessible to the average American.

2) Eating disorders thrive in shame and isolation, making it difficult for sufferers to honestly share about the struggle.

SoulPaws is a 501C3 nonprofit organization dedicated to offering holistic and therapeutic support to sufferers of eating disorders, while also rescuing shelter animals. Our programming includes free animal-assisted therapy (utilizing certified therapy dogs and rescue animals), journaling therapy, meditation, yoga, art therapy, and more.

By creating a free and easily accessible therapeutic community, SoulPaws directly combats the shame and secrecy so inherent in anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, and OSFED. Together, we can practice feeling what we feel and letting it be, just as animals naturally do in every moment of their lives. We can create a pack of recovery and love that will remind us, particularly on the days when we want to isolate, that we are never alone.
