Patriot PAWS Service Dogs received a generous donation of Pro Plan Focus dog food from our friends at Purina Pro Plan!

At Patriot PAWS, we feel confident feeding our dogs Pro Plan Focus.  Not only do we respect Purina’s scientific expertise in pet nutrition, physiology and behavior, but we have seen first-hand the positive effect that this high quality dog food has on our dogs’ skin, coats and general digestive health.

In fact, our own in-house nutritional and digestive health study directly links a positive trend in our dogs’ digestive health with their Pro Plan diet.  Additionally, Patriot PAWS service dogs in-training consistently exhibit shiny coats and healthy skin, which we also attribute to a Pro Plan diet.

The mission of Patriot PAWS is to train and provide service dogs of the highest quality at no cost to disabled American veterans.  These amazing dogs work hard and play hard every day, and deserve to be fed a diet like Purina Pro Plan that keeps them looking and feeling their best.

Thank you, Purina, for your support!


Patriot PAWS is a non-profit dedicated to providing disabled veterans with service dogs and no cost to the veteran. Each service dog is specially trained by elite dog trainers to assist and protect veterans with life-altering injuries, PTSD, and other disabilities. Each dog takes approximately two years to train, costing the organization around $33,000 per pup. Now, The Texas Federation of Republican Women is raising funds to help!

Aaron Mixell

Retired U.S. Army Ranger Aaron Mixel is standing on the side of a road in Rockwall; it’s something he says he couldn’t do two years ago.

You look around most streets and you see debris on the sides and the work cones, and these are things they’ve put IEDs in.

Mixel served in the military for 20 years. He enlisted in his home state of California at the age of 17. In 2009, he was in Afghanistan when an IED exploded right next to him. He was only partially blocked by the Humvee he was standing next to at the time. He suffered brain damage, lost his right eye and his arm was torn up by the shrapnel.
