BENEFITING: SoulPaws Recovery Project, Inc.
SoulPaws Recovery Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to inspiring mindfulness and eating disorder recovery through human-animal connection.
Unlike any other eating disorder support program in the world, SoulPaws offers unique and free animal-assisted therapy support groups for those impacted by eating disorders in Southern California. With a curriculum designed specifically to address body image and eating disorder issues, SoulPaws is becoming a vital part of the recovery process for many people.
We'd like to expand and offer our workshops in cities across the country, but first, we need funds to create an online training course for facilitators. Funds will also be used to provide supplies to participants (journals) and our animals (food, treats, towels, toys etc.) SoulPaws currently works with rescue animals, therapy animals (dogs, puppies, miniature horses, rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, birds), and service dogs.
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. Donations are tax-deductible!
