Speaker: Paws with Purpose
About Paws with Purpose
Together, we can fulfill old dreams and create new dreams for the future, giving lives what we all need, a “purpose.”
What purpose do our dogs serve?
- Service Dogs partnered with individuals with limited mobility can perform many day-to-day tasks such as retrieving dropped objects, opening doors, reaching tall counters, turning lights off and on, and pulling manual wheelchairs.
- Signal Dogs partnered with individuals who are hearing impaired can alert to a crying baby, a knock at the door, or the ring of a telephone.
- Facility Dogs working with professionals can help improve the health, emotional well-being and quality of life for individuals at a nursing home, Rehabilitation center, special needs classroom, or other programs where interaction with a dog is beneficial to the healing process.
Assisted Service Dogs are provided to children with disabilities and adults with developmental disabilities that would require the assistance of a third party.
These highly skilled dogs not only provide assistance, they also provide constant companionship and unconditional love to those they serve.
