Paws For Hope, Inc. The Non-Profit Corporation has been organized for the following purposes: To rescue neglected or in need dogs (K-9s) from their peril. To train and restore them to full health so that they can assist military personnel returning from active duty and/or retired personnel who are in need of service dogs for assistance with all manner of disabilities as well as adults and children in need of a service dog. We will try to afford the animals to the military personnel on a first-come first-serve basis avoiding discrimination or biases but also matching the dogs appropriately based on personality. Please understand that the best possible match always takes precedence over who came first. We will accept the dogs voluntarily from individuals or kennels that can turn unwanted K-9s over to us. Furthermore, we will rescue from kill shelter and rehabilitate the dogs for the training program. In essence, we are serving multiple roles to society. We will house, feed and train the dogs making them suitable for their medical intent (personal aid). Our expenses are offset by seeking public donations, contributions, membership and grants. We will seek public and or private sponsorship per dog to offset expenses such as housing, feeding, medicating and specific training. The training will be premised off of the American Disability Act provisions for training dogs to assist humans in their daily life activities. Rescuing dogs is core to what we do. These amazing animals are given a second chance at life and most often they will go on to graduate as a fully certified Service Dog. However, in some cases, dogs are released from our training program because they either do not have the temperament for full service dog certification, may be timid, easily distracted, or unable to resist chasing the occasional squirrel. All dogs that come through our doors receive a second chance at life. They do not return to shelters. All dogs are current on distemper combo, kennel cough, rabies vaccinations, have a microchip identification, and are spayed or neutered.
