Through the paws4vets™ Assistance Dog Placement Program, Veterans, Active-Duty Service Members or their dependents with physical, neurological, psychiatric or emotional disabilities can receive Psychiatric Service Dogs, Mobility Service Dogs and Rehabilitative Assistance Dogs, free of charge.
Although these dogs are provided free of charge, approximately 2 years and $35,000 are spent on each individual dog. It is through generous donations from our supporters that we are able to provide customized service dogs to Veterans, Active Duty Service Members and their dependents.
paws4vets™ is a program through paws4people™ whose mission is to enhance the lives of special and regular education students, seniors, and the seriously ill or disabled, by utilizing the "Special Powers" of canine companionship displayed by highly trained Assistance Dogs; including Service, Educational Assistance K-9s, Rehabilitative Assistance Dogs and Social Therapy dogs in specialized educational, private placements and therapeutic visitation programs.
