5 years and 7 service dogs in training later, My Angel With Paws is everything I could have hoped for and more. The amount of time and work that goes into each dog and every person is amazing. It is even more amazing that everything is done by volunteers. The volunteers of this organization have the biggest hearts and souls around. My Angel With Paws is a great nonprofit but great doesn't even begin to cover how fantastic MAWP is.
I have been apart of My Angel With Paws since 2009. In that time I have raised 4 dogs (about to start the 5th) for the program. Everyone I have met with volunteering has become like a second family to me. The amount of passion and love that everyone has is absolutely delightful. When I started, I wasn't exactly sure how our saying "Miracles, one angel at a time" worked. Now I fully believe in it. I have seen our dogs help so many people in so many different ways. It is life changing. This organization is truly a great one!
I have been a board member working with My Angel with Paws for several years. This organization provides many services to the community. As a 100% volunteer organization all efforts and funds go directly to the Breeding, Raising, Training and placement of Services Dogs. Help is also given to insure an ideal working relationship with the Partner and Service Dog. This bond goes beyond companionship. People have been able to become active and vital members in the community. Independence boost self esteem, mobility and purpose in life for so many. Marylou Weiner
I am a volunteer and Board Member with My Angel With Paws. This organization is staffed by volunteers and raise and train Service Dogs for people with mobility disabilities. The support that the Service Dog give their Partners is valuable to help them become independent and many times provide confidence they need to fulfill an active life that we all deserve to enjoy. These animals can have a profound impact on quality of life for our clients and their family. For me this is a very important way of contributing to our community. I am very Blessed and gratefut for an opportunity to help others. Marylou Weiner.
What started as a walk by the My Angel With Paws booth at a community event, to becoming a service dog owner and board member has been very special. I stand in awe at the dedication of these volunteers. They ensure these puppies are raised with love, compassion, positive reinforcement, and most of all the skills needed to ensure a lifetime of success and independence to our clients. As for working around the dogs....what a bonus!
I have been associated with My Angel With Paws since it's inception and continue to an active Boatd member, puppy raiser, trainer and volunteer. It is a quality organization dedicated to placing fully trained service dogs with individuals who are physically challanged. Their commitment to the clients and animals continues for the life of the dog. Although they have been operating just since 2009, they have had many successful placemtns and are looking forward to their second graduating class in 2013. They are making a huge difference for many people in the handicapped community. They are also involved with therapy work, reading programs for chidlren and educational programs for community organizations. All in all, they are a great asset to the communities that they serve.
I serve as the President of the Board of Directors, Event Coordinator, trainer, puppy raiser and breeder care taker. As a dog breeder, responsible owner, trainer and dog lover I have participated in all parts of the dog world. No part has captured my heart and soul like My Angel With Paws.
This organization is truly, a volunteer organization. All the volunteers put their hearts and souls into it. No one has ever given up even in the toughest times.
I am the kind of person that when I commmit to something I do it 100%. I find many like minded people at My Angel With Paws. No matter what the challenges, everyone associated with this organization puts the dogs first and serves as a voice for them.
My Angel With Paws currently and will always retain the true spirit of a non profit organization. Every volunteer involved feels an ownership of this organization, welcoming new volunteers and working tirelessly to ensure the organization moves forward in a positive manner. As founder and Executive Director I am honored and humbled to be a part of this wonderful organization and its cause. The training and placing of service dogs to enhance the lives of individuals in need is the most amazing and wonderful experience of my life.
I am totally thrilled and honored to be a part of such a caring organization. It is very difficult to describe the joy of seeing a service dog choose their forever partner and watch as they bond and grow into a very special team. This experience changes you.
Every facet of this program focuses on the positive impact -- from rescuing a dog from the shelter to the joy they bring their puppy trainer to the talented and confident service dog. I have finally found out what it is that I want to do when I grow up - finally.
I will continue to Pay it Forward by supporting My Angel Wtih Paws.
