Our Mission.

The mission of Patriot PAWS is to train and provide service dogs of the highest quality at no cost to disabled American veterans and others with mobile disabilities and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in order to help restore their physical and emotional independence. Patriot PAWS intends to build partnerships with local, state and national organizations to help develop and support this goal.

From the Veterans.

“Anne
takes notice when my anxiety and frustration
are skyrocketing.” (She then makes a concentrated
effort to lead Edwin outside to the lake
on their property to play ball.) “We both tire
out…and then we walk back into the house
with her at my side again…Anne has made
me realize when it is time to step away.”

Edwin and Anne

“Kal has helped me in more ways
than I can count! Just (him) being there, I am
more confident and sure-footed.”

Toby and Kal

“Pilot helps me a lot with
my day to day issues. He’s the pilot, and I’m
the co-pilot. He takes care of me, and I take
care of him. We’re a team. He’s my friend.
He’s my everything. I don’t know how I ever
did without him.”

Eddie and Pilot

“Because
of Dixie, I don’t really feel uncomfortable
going places I normally would have been
uncomfortable going.”

Chris and Dixie

“Camo and I are
stick buddies for life, and we can depend on
each other to get us home safely. His happy
personality and desire to please are contagious.
I am so lucky for this opportunity at
this time in my life.”

Arlie and Camo

“Bomber helps me to slow down my mind,
to live less in the past. I pay more attention
to life. I can talk to him and get things off
my chest. He loves me, and because of that,
I am learning to love again.”

Greg and Bomber

“Even though
it’s been such a short time, I can’t begin to
count the number of times I’ve been able
to avoid very painful but simple tasks like
picking up a dropped item. Tyler has been
a blessing.”

Chris and Tyler

“Fuzzy has
made my life easier, keeps me calm and collected
with my kids and gives me a reason
to get outside.”

Justin and Fuzzy

“Having Logan has made life worth living. For 30 days of radiation treatment, I would come home, and Logan would totally love on me. He senses my moods and sleeps by my head. Logan is a priceless asset to my life!”

Alice and Logan

“Since
Reckless has come to live with me, I have
been able to get out and live a semi-normal
life. I don’t have to constantly keep my head
on a swivel because I know my wingman
has my six.”

Jeremy and Reckless
