My son was just placed in a class for a multi purpose service dog for his autism, TORRETTEs, IED, OCD, ADHD, and severe anxiety. This is a wonderful non profit organization who helps children with all different types of disorders regardless of age. They even help Vets in need. I would not recommend any other agency. They have provided a safe place for parents and children to talk, share, and listen. One big happy family! I also recently decided to give back by volunteering and fostering a future 4 PAWS SD.
My daughter fostered 3 dogs. The attention to detail in training, placement, care and feeding, is first class. I've seen the difference it has made in lives. Cannot say enough positive remarks about all involved. Tremendous leadership, caring and love.
I love this organization! I have had 3 dogs from there that I have socialize! Love what they stand for!
I have been involved with 4 Paws as a volunteer for a number of years. I am constantly impressed with the care and treatment of their animals from training puppies to their breeding program. They have a facility completely dedicated to their breeders and puppies which is monitored extremely closely.
In addition, what this organization does for the community is amazing. They train service dogs for people who would find life very difficult without them. These are quality dogs that are highly trained to accomplish very specific and needed tasks.
While the CEO is VERY involved with the day-to-day operations, she has also wisely surrounded herself with employees who are the best at what they do. When out in public with a training dog, I have heard no shortage of positive comments about these dogs. This is one organization that I am, without reservation, proud to be a part of and will continue to support 4 Paws for Ability as long as I am able to do so.
I am a college foster for 4paws, meaning I raise a new service dog in training each semester. I am currently raising my third puppy and cannot speak more highly of 4paws. 4paws really cares about their dogs and the kids they give them to. Although some of the rules and procedures surrounding the fostering process may seem rigid they are put in place to insure their dogs' safety. Volunteering for this organization has changed my life. I love all three of the dogs I have fostered and seeing photos of them and communicating with the families and kids who receive them has been an amazing experience. Every organization has its problems and I think the bad reviews of 4paws that are out there are from people who have not given 4paws a chance. Their new facility is a testament to their hard work and the vision they have for providing exceptional care for their dogs and an amazing facility for families to come to when they go through training with the dogs.
