Paws With A Cause
Paws with a Cause enhances the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities nationally through custom-trained Assistance Dogs. Find out how you can help this great organization!
Currently, they are in need of:
Breeding Stock Homes: A Breeding Host helps PAWS breed puppies that will become future Assistance Dogs. A Breeding Host volunteers to house, train and care for a Breeding Dog and makes it available to PAWS during breeding times. A Breeding Host also assists with whelping and raising litters until they are about 8 weeks old. PAWS is available to help every step of the way.
Foster Puppy Raisers: A Foster Puppy Raiser helps a person living with a disability by raising a dog that will enhance their independence and quality of life. Foster Puppy Raisers volunteer to raise a PAWS Puppy for 14-18 months, until it’s old enough to begin formal Assistance Dog training. During that time, the puppy lives in a raiser’s home while they teach basic obedience and expose the dog to public environments it may experience with a client.
