I first found out about Paws of War in June of 2018 while volunteering with Long Island Cares - another organization that provides assistance and support services to veterans. I began following Paws of War on social media, and decided to pay a visit to their recent grand opening in Nesconset to find out about opportunities to volunteer. Immediately I knew that this was an organization I would like to give my time and efforts to. In the short time that I have spent with them so far, they have welcomed me to their family and I have had the pleasure of observing several of their training classes. Rebecca, the head trainer is amazing and she is so kind and supportive in her approach to both the dogs and veterans & first responders alike. Their new location provides a comfortable space that facilitates learning, acceptance, and positivity for such important work to take place. I look forward to helping this organization grow and evolve as it continues to provide such critical support to so many deserving individuals.

I was introduced to Paws of War by a friend who had received a service dog. He had fell ill and needed long term hospitalization. I fostered his service dog and found a great deal of relief and comfort dealing with my own ptsd issues. I applied and was welcomed to the paws of war family. Today I have a fully trained dog that assists me daily. I have also become pretty intergrated with the organization volunteering my time. Doing this also helps me maintain a continuity in my life. I love helping other veterans.
