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

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

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. PLEASE know we do NOT require a CGC nor do we encourage 'Therapy Dog Classes'  Basic obedience yes, BUT be wary if anybody tells you you MUST complete a CGC or 'Therapy Dog Class' to join. We do not believe in 'classes' that claim they can make your dog a Therapy Dog, they either enjoy visiting, enjoy being around other pets or they do not. No 'class' can make a Therapy Dog.

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.
