      Welcome to the Official - Paws For Friendship Inc. - Website

It's said the souls of those we love become part of our souls forever

"Everyone must leave a legacy and Paws for Friendship Incorporated is the legacy of Jennie, our beloved Founder."​

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words


 Our prayers and thoughts go to all those effected from the tragedy in Las Vegas. We  join the Nation in extending our sincere sympathy.

                                                 May God bless

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.

PAWS is a Therapy Pet Organization proudly celebrating 24 years of volunteer service as of 2017. Our certified and registered pets and owners focus their visits to nursing homes, hospitals, schools, etc. located across the Nation. PAWS is comprised entirely of volunteers and there is no paid staff. Tax deductible donations, are sincerely appreciated as they help us grow and reach those in need of a wagging tail!

Disposition is critical while common sense, common courtesy and the desire to truly make a difference in so many lives are some of the fundamental requirements needed to join. We pride ourselves on the work we do and therefore, are not associated nor affiliated with any other organizations.

We certify and register each pet in our Organization and we are listed with the American Kennel Club Therapy Dog Program on the AKC website. 

Our Mission Statement:
Paws For Friendship Incorporated is a non-profit Organization of Volunteers sharing the unconditional love of their personal pets with people in need throughout the world.

Thank you for visiting our website and should you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact us.

Our beloved Founder Jennie

 Melissa Edwards, Harley & Guinness's Mom, has recognized the value of PAWS FOR FRIENDSHIP in her  community. She heard the organization is in need of a new ID Card machine and has  graciously created a "go-fund-me" account. IF you believe in PAWS as she does, then  please click on the link below today and contribute what you can. THANKS to all for  their support....
