THE STORY:

 

paws4people foundation was founded by our dear client, Kyria Henry, in 1999 (then 12 years old!) with the purpose of using dogs as a means of helping people.This nonprofit’s mission is to enhance the lives of those living with serious illnesses or disabilities by utilizing highly trained assistance dogs.

paws4people currently has more than 300 highly trained Assistance Dogs providing support in areas such as mobility and psychiatric service, educational and rehabilitative assistance, and social therapy.
Together, these dogs have made more than 1,000,000 therapeutic contacts.

Although most people today are aware of the benefits of service dogs for the blind or people with mobility impairments, there are many newer and unique applications with which people are still unfamiliar.

At paws4people foundation, the philosophy is that children and adolescents with disabilities can and should be considered clients and be taught how to utilize an Assistance Dog to mitigate the effects of their disability. In these instances, proper training and employment of an Assistance Dog may allow a child to independently perform tasks that are standard for his or her peers. Over time, this negates the necessity of over-dependence on adults and aids, thus allowing the child to grow and mature more independently. As a foundation, paws4people believes this is the very essence of independence, and one of the most important roles of an Assistance Dog.

The Mission of the paws4people foundation is to enhance the lives of the Active-Duty Service Members, Veterans, Inmates, Children, and Senior Citizens by utilizing the “special powers” of canine companionship and service displayed by highly trained Assistance Dogs, through specialized educational, private placement, therapeutic and visitation programs.
