Thank you for your interest in receiving a PAWS Assistance Dog.In an effort to better meet the needs of our future and current clients PAWS has an annual application request time period for all first-time applicants. Application requests will be available April 1- June 30 of each year.
During this time you will be able to request an application to receive a Service Dog to help with physical disabilities, a Hearing Dog to alert to common environmental sounds, a Seizure Response Dog to aid you during or after your seizures and Service Dogs for Children with Autism. Please check our website for the qualifications to receive each type of Assistance Dog and for additional program requirements.
At this time PAWS does not train Psychiatric Service Dogs to assist with PTSD, anxiety, or depression or Diabetic Alert Dogs.
If you have, or have had a PAWS Assistance dog and are in need of a Successor Dog, please contact PAWS directly by calling 800-253-7297 or e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that in order for PAWS to place an Assistance Dog with you, we must have a local Field Representative in your area and that coverage is subject to change at any time.
