We love Our Angels With Paws! Our 17 year old special needs daughter who is also deaf has a loyal, compassionate and very capable service dog from this organization. This organization has been very supportive and always available to us whenever we need guidance or additional education.

My Angel with Paws is an amazing Organization helping people with special needs to become more independent with the help from a service dog. They strive in training each dog to become top notch, they continue to strive in helping train you and your service dog to meet your needs as an individual. They have helped me and my son Kyle with a dual service dog (Ikia) who has aided us in so many ways and has become truly a huge part of our family . All the crew at My Angel With Paws are a blessing to us and a part of our family as well. God Bless this group

My Angel With Paws is a highly professional and compassionate organization. They helped me train my dog, Thor, to be a Service Dog and a Therapy Dog. They are full of helpful feedback, create a fun atmosphere for learning and are loyal to their clients. My wife and I are grateful to be associated with them.

I first learned about MAWP from an article in our local newspaper. I immediately knew that I wanted to support them in whatever way possible. I have found this group to be dedicated, responsive and truly focused on training through positive reinforcement. The commitment of each person involved at MAWP is truly admirable. I learn something new every time I am there and I know that every dog placed has received the highest quality training available in this area.

I'm afraid I won't have enough space to say all that I would like to say about My Angel with Paws! This Non-Profit organization exceeds any expectations that I ever could have imagined regarding the breeding, training, care, guidance, and love given to each and every dog and each and every client. MAWP goes well beyond their mission and goals, is a 100% volunteer based organization, and only places dogs that meet their service dog criteria. This Non-Profit is an organization that many in the area need to know more about! I am also forever grateful that they will release any dog that doesn't meet their expectations...that is how I got my girl!

Excellent mission focused organization. Sarah Townsend, Executive Director is a capable, hands on leader. Sarah and her volunteers have been actively supporting the placement of a facility dog at our agency. She has been very giving of her time to ensure Draco is a good match for our residents with intellectual disabilities and autism. I highly recommend this organization.

I love working with My Angel With Paws. All the people there have a kind heart. We are not a rich group with money but we all give of ourselves, our time. We train Service Dogs for people who need help. And we do events to let the world know we are here. Sometime I just wish we could do more.

I’m disabled with MS that has severely compromised my balance. Over a year ago I was looking for a service dog that could help me walk safer without having to always rely on a walker. I found a few places in Fl that offered service dogs. Two which offered balance brace dogs. One was out of my financial reach. The other My Angel with Paws was my God send. Not only were they affordable they offered grants. I’ve been placed with my dog Cooper for almost two years now. She had helped to assure my safety by doing numerous tasks for me. We now totally rely on each other. She has enlightened not only my life but the many people we come in contact with during our outings.

I found this wonderful agency in 2014. I took some time to decide if a service dog was right for me. They allowed me to go to classes even though I hadn't applied. This showed me how they operated with their clients and clients-to-be. I also got a foundation on how to work with a dog.

About six months later I knew a dog would make my life far more independent. I applied and they started thinking about the dogs that would have my skill set. I know they had one dog in mind...but...Jagger picked me. Turns out he was the perfect dog for me! It is amazing how the dogs know who their person is.

We've been a team now for awhile and he still amazes me every day. As a bonus we found he medically alerts to a condition I have. He wasn't trained for that, just the aftermath. But he knows beforehand. That alone is a lifesaver for me so I won't get hurt.

When I am wobbly he helps me walk. If I can't bend over, he will pick things up for me. If I am not feeling well, he does not leave my side!

All through my journey and until the present, My Angel With Paws has been with me every step of the way. One of the things I most admire about them is that they do not hand you a dog and then you are on your own. Not with them! They encourage clients to continue classes and keep skills up.

I've also made very good friends. Between them, and having my Jagger, my life has been exponentially enhanced.

This organization does more with less. Operates on a shoe string budget and is led by a core of volunteers who authentically want to improve the lives of its clients by training its loving four legged partners to exceed expectations and deliver life altering results. The service dogs that graduate are real service dogs and are matched to deserving recipients. The finest nonprofit my wife and I have had the pleasure of being associated with.

My Angel with Paws, Inc. is one of the most ethical, talented, and kind nonprofits we have ever worked with. They give much personal attention to both the dogs and the clients. Their consistent hands-on approach is one they pride themselves on and I have never found them to be anything but cooperative and communicative. The training is great fun to watch and the dogs always look so happy as they train for a life of service!

After finding this organization and having a sit down, I feel the confidence to go forth and push for my needs with my disability. I have hope and a dream. They filled me with this warmth that I’m not alone, nor should be ashamed that I need assistance of more than medicine. I’m eager to work with them and find some calm in my future with a service dog to guide me.
