Our Mission Statement

Paws 4 Love, through pet therapy, encourages literacy, volunteerism and well-being within the community.
Since 1997, Paws 4 Love, a non-profit therapy dog organization, has been serving our community through the work of dedicated volunteers and their dogs. Paws 4 Love therapy dogs visit facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, psychiatric facilities, homeless and children shelters and retirement communities.
You will find Paws 4 Love therapy teams at local libraries, schools and courthouses. Our therapy teams are invited to different facilities and businesses for special events throughout the year.

The Power of Paws

Studies have shown that simply petting an animal can lower blood pressure and heart rate, and lessen anxiety and depression. Exposure to friendly pets can also play an important role in patient treatment and recovery by relieving feelings of loneliness and isolation thereby providing a distraction from persistent pain.
