Welcome to PAWWS to Heal

We use interaction with our specially-trained therapy animals as a healing tool for children to work through emotional, physical and behavioral problems. When conventional therapy is unable to reach a child, animals and their unconditional love, trust, patience and support are used to assist in healing and to reach goals, which have been set by therapists, special education teachers, counselors, parents, and guardians.

PAWWS to Heal is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to children and animals. Through interactive therapy with animals, our services strengthen and improve the lives of children as they journey the path of healing from abuse and coping with physical disabilities.

PAWWS Thanks A Young Hero

Birthday money collected for Pawws to HealA ten year old girl was having a birthday party December 13, 2014 to celebrate her eleventh birthday. She requested to her guests in her invitation that instead of buying her gifts they could make a small donation to PAWWS to HEAL. At the end of the party she had raised $183.00.

When she brought this monetary gift to PAWWS to Heal, we wereoverwhelmed with joy and thankfulness, in thinking that this child gave our organization a random act of kindness to continue the work we do with the children. Her unselfishness, integrity and love makes her our hero.

Thank you so much, you are a wonderful child!
