We make lives FULL of PAWSabilities! Here is the opportunity to make an independent lifestyle possible for someone that relies on PAWSabilities in their daily lives. Service dogs provide vital tasks, from opening doors and maintaining mobility, to lifesaving alerting blood sugar levels. The extremely high cost ($15,000 to $90,000) of a fully trained dog is cost prohibited for most. Owner/Handler service dog training can provide a more affordable ($4,000 to $8,000)opportunity for many. We can not fulfill our mission to provide free/low-cost training and resources without volunteer mined people like you! Every moment of donated time, talent, or expertise makes a life full of PAWSabilities happen.
