Who We Are

Patriot PAWS Service Dogs was founded as a National 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization in 2006. However, in reality, Patriot PAWS started a year earlier when Founder & Executive Director, Lori Stevens, met a group of Veterans at the Dallas VA Hospital in 2005. The Veterans were attempting to train their personal dogs as Service Dogs to mitigate their spinal cord injuries. With Stevens being a Professional Dog Trainer for 30+ years and her son just enlisting in the military, she knew she had to answer the calling on her heart.
