Extensive pre-qualification.
Accepted to receive a service dog.
It's been 4 years now and nothing but solicitations for donations.

Thank you for your comment. Please help us help you by letting us know who you are. We have searched our records and do not have any approved applications in our pool that have been there longer than 2 1/2 years. We are careful to let every applicant know that the process of training a service dog takes up to two years and we place dogs first come, first served. We hope you will contact us at office@patriotpaws.org.

Patriot PAWS provides service dogs for disabled veterans. See www.patriotpaws.org. Lori Stevens and her small team provide specialized service dogs for our returning war heros. She trains women in the prison system in Texas to actually train the dogs. The female offenders have gained a tremendous amount, too, from "giving back" - and the veterans lives are changed forever. This organization relies totally on donations. This is the most amazing group of people who are working hard to make sure that our veterans - who have fought so hard for our freedom - have some of their freedom returned to them with a service dog.
