Mission Statement

Helping Humanity with Dogs

Description

paws4people™ has over 175 dogs who are certified and working or in their training program throughout nine Mid- Eastern states. paws4people™ specializes in placing dogs with children and adolescents, active duty soldiers and veterans with physiological, psychological, physical, emotional and other challenges. The difference a dog makes in these people’s life is profound.

Dogs are trained in federal prisons by female inmates in another program started and run by Kyria - paws4prisons™. In this way, our programs are allowing these ladies an opportunity to give back to society while caring for a dog 24/7/365. Again, the affect is profound.

More than 150 people volunteer with the program. We use dogs to teach kids to read, help kids to walk, visitations at senior homes and so much more.
