Paws and Affection is a nonprofit 501c3 focused on the mission of training and placing service dogs with children ages 9-20 who have physical disabilities. Our goal is to empower these children with independence and confidence by matching them with amazing dogs.
At Paws and Affection we recognize the innate ability dogs have to bond with humans. Dogs use their heightened senses to read our body language and to smell changes in our body chemistry. When these abilities are honed to focus on specific needs, the result is a mutually beneficial relationship between dog and child that has a tremendous impact.
