Attached a thank you note that Charlie received yesterday at one of the assisted living locations that she visits weekly. When I read the attached, it brought a tear to my eye since, knowing the lady who wrote it meant every word.

Some angels don't have wings. They have four paws, hairy bodies,                          round noses, and unconditional love...........

Paws For Friendship Incorporated


We each hear and see the words 'animal cruelty' but most often dismiss it as something that happens 'someplace else.' After all, each and every PAWS member cares deeply for their four legged companion and could not imagine someone doing harm to this loved one. FACT is, it happens and can be committed even by members of our own organization. We are being conditioned to "mind our own business" or that if we report any such activity we have somehow committed a crime and now WE are the 'bad guys.' NOTHING can be farther from the TRUTH! In order to combat this and help save these precious and innocent lives from those that wish to do them harm, we have instituted a tab committed to ANIMAL CRUELTY. PLEASE, take the time to review this valuable information as it may indeed save a poor creature from a life of torture and misery. 

​ ​PAWS is a Therapy Pet Organization proudly celebrating 26 years of volunteer service as of 2019. 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. Our Members are insured and certified! PLEASE know we do NOT require a CGC nor do we encourage 'Therapy Dog Classes' and we do not charge for evaluations.  IF anyone claims we do require a CGC or formal Therapy Dog class to join, please contact us. Please know if YOU want to enroll your dog into any 'obedience classes' please do however, be wary IF someone claims these classes make a 'Therapy Dog.' ALL the classes in the world cannot make a Therapy Pet. Disposition, well socialized, regular Veterinarian Check-Ups, etc are are all critical for a therapy dog.

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