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

Twenty five years ago our beloved Founder, Jennie, walked into a care center and our Legacy began. Through God's grace many followed in her paw prints and we proudly CELEBRATE our 25th year of Volunteer Excellence in 2018. There are not enough words to thank all those who have made this possible. To all of our outstanding Members and friends throughout these 25 years we cannot thank you enough.

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

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.' and we do not charge for evaluations.  Be wary IF someone claims classes make a 'Therapy Dog'  IF anyone claims we do require a CGC or formal Therapy Dog class to join please contact us.
