Power Paws for Kids is a 501(c) 3 non-for profit organization providing animal assisted activities programs.  We offer weekly group sessions where participants are matched with a volunteer and their dog for the duration of the program. Activities are goal directed and focus on canine training through positive reinforcement.

Can my Dog be a Therapy Dog? 

Power Paws is always looking for new volunteers!  Therapy Dogs must have a friendly, even tempered, gentle and reliable temperament. They must be responsive to basic obedience commands and be able to remain calm in a multitude of environments.  They must be able to interact well with other dogs. Most importantly, they must love to meet new people and truly enjoy the petting, hugs and attention bestowed upon them.

If you have a dog that you think will qualify please contact us thru our website application and we will set up an evaluation.

If you don't have a dog you can always become a booster member and we can use your special talents.

PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING OUR THERAPY DOG GROUP!
