Support PALS

Thank you for your interest in supporting Paws As Loving Support (PALS) Assistance Dogs. The generous donations from individuals, service clubs, businesses, foundations, and bequests insure that we can continue helping our community by providing certified service, facility, social, therapy, reading and comfort dogs. We do not receive any government funding for our programs. With your gift, you are making an investment in developing an extraordinary life-long, human-animal partnership and team.

There are a variety of interactive relationships that develop through PALS trainers, volunteers and disability experts to make the perfect match for a recipient whether it be a service PAL placed with a child, a facility PAL with a professional or a social therapy PAL placed with a volunteer. Every dollar donated is leveraged through our corporate and community partnerships, volunteers, puppy raisers and others to maximize the services we provide for those in need.

Paws As Loving Support (PALS) Assistance Dogs, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, 100% volunteer organization.
