Help Paws With a Cause® Train a Shelter Dog
Help give a shelter dog a new and rewarding life as a trained assistance dog!
Approximately 97% of all people with disabilities are not blind; they are physically challenged in some other way. Paws With a Cause® trains dogs to help with many everyday tasks that can pose significant challenges to those with disabilities.
With their constant attentiveness and loyalty, dogs are the ideal service animal. An assistance dog can alert a deaf parent to the crying of a baby in the next room, or to help with daily independence by opening doors using a special pulling device invented by Paws With a Cause®. Dogs can be trained to pull wheelchairs, transfer a wallet to a cashier and back, and even call 911 when needed.
Paws With a Cause® facilitates the fostering of 1- to 3-year-old dogs from shelters with loving families who provide a safe and loving foundation. The dogs undergo careful training and evaluation so they can be matched with the best possible owner.
The Animal Rescue Site is excited to support Paws With a Cause® in its noble work. $20.00 through this Gift That Gives More™ helps transform a shelter dog into a trained Assistant Dog.
Report From The Field: Your donations made a difference for Kipp and Crystal!
Thanks to donors through this Gift That Gives More™, rescued Yorkshire terrier Kipp received special training and a new forever-home helping Crystal in Flint, MI.
As a hearing assistance dog, Kipp alerts Crystal when her dryer completes its cycle, or when the microwave finishes cooking a meal. Because Crystal cannot hear her alarm clock, Kipp wakes her each morning with some friendly licks.
Thanks to your donations here, Crystal now leads a more independent lifestyle and Kipp now has a forever home.
In 1979, Paws With A Cause®, first named Ears for the Deaf, was born. Only a few small organizations existed to train dogs for the majority of the disabled population, which includes those individuals with the most severely limiting disabilities. Approximately 97% of all people with disabilities are not blind; they are physically challenged in some other way, and very few dogs were being trained to work with them. Paws With a Cause® trains Assistance Dogs for people with disabilities, provides lifetime team support that encourages independence, and promotes awareness through education.
