During this video, you will hear the story of Lucca, a 12-year old military dog. She served on hundreds of missions before she lost a leg in an explosion. Not a single Marine died under her watch. At the beginning of this video, you will see her receive the highest medal for valor.

Welcome to the Official - Paws For Friendship Inc. - Website
One of the residents that Breezy and I visit weekly, is a lovely lady named Mary Lou. This is a picture of she and Breezy from last Summer. Unfortunately, Mary Lou passed away recently. I had her Daughters cell number, as she had sent me this picture last year. Upon hearing of her Mom's passing, I texted her a quick note, sending our condolences. Below is what she wrote back. I already knew that all of us volunteers make a big difference with our visits. But reading her kind words, really touched me. I wanted to share with you. Feel free to share with others.

2016 MACY's 'Shop for a Cause' has come and now is gone. It was a great experience being invited by MACY's to participate in their program. It was a great pleasure having our 'babies' in the Citrus Park Mall along with their mom's and dad's meeting all the wonderful people that were stopping by and chatting with us about our outstanding PAWS program. It was a GREAT three days enjoyed by all. Click on the button below, scroll down a bit and we have pictures of our members in action.

Learn With Jenza Dog Training
Jan here - many times during the course of a conversation the question about 'training' arises. While PAWS cannot recommend anyone, I have personally used Lisa's services and can without any reservation recommend her. IF you have training questions or concerns please give her a call. She and her husband Dave will help you understand how important training is. They teach obedience beginner classes up to Advanced Agility classes and everything in between! A link to her website has been provided.
