Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser. My Angel with Paws is a not-for-profit organization that breeds, raises and provides expertly trained service dogs for children and adults with primarily mobility disabilities. Our dogs not only assist with physical tasks, but also provide social support, and other needs.
Miracles … One Angel At A Time!
My Angel with Paws also provides therapy and animal-assisted therapy dogs to rehabilitation centers, nursing centers and other facilities requesting a therapy dog throughout Florida.
Our Education Program provides a unique learning experience for schools, civic groups, employers and other organizations.
Our service dogs are trained to assist people with primarily mobility impairments. In addition to the over 90 physical tasks they may be trained to perform, service dogs give emotional support and comfort to their partners fostering social acceptance, possibly for the first time in their lives.
Learning to live with a disability is a traumatic and often overwhelming process. Studies have found that within six months of receiving a service dog, participants demonstrated an increase in self-esteem, psychological well-being, community integration and also a 70 percent decrease in home aide needs. That’s a pretty significant finding.
We try to understand the needs and concerns of others with physical disabilities and special needs.
We try to understand the little boy with muscular dystrophy who won't go to school in his wheelchair because he feels different from the other children.
We try to understand the terror of the young man, a quadriplegic from a diving accident, who must spend hours alone in his home because insurance won't pay for a full time attendant.
We try to understand the urgency in the voice of the young girl who has cerebral palsy when she begs us to hurry and train a dog for her because she doesn't want to be alone anymore.
We try to understand!
We know what to do!
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We sincerely hope with all our heart that you will be inspired by our dogs and our recipients!
Our dogs have so much love and assistance to give!
Our goal is to help as many people as possible.
The power of unconditional love and acceptance in society is truly a wondrous thing.
We wish it for us all!
