My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for My Angel with Paws, Inc., Deland, FL, USA
My first service dog passed away after we had been a team for 11 years. I had applied for a successor dog, but after months turned into years, I realized that the current coordinators were not working towards matching me with another companion. And then, a gift from god. I met chris, the executive director of MAWP. She listened to my tale, had me fill out an application and she proceeded to work with me. In just a few weeks, she got in touch with me and set up a home visit.
Within a couple of months, I was invited to meet my wonderful service dog, snickers. Having gone through team training once, I thought I knew it all. How wrong I was! Chris taught me things I had never known. Her love for her clients and her dogs surpasses anybody I have ever known. It was a tough 2 weeks and chris expected a lot from us, and would not settle for less. She taught me to be a good handler.
Everyone associated with MAWP is so committed to their clients, and they are all volunteers. The relationship does not end when training is over, meetings are set up to see how then team is doing at home, making sure that both the dog and the handler are happy and safe.
My life changed on that october night when i met chris. I don't know how she does it, but she knew that snickers was the dog for me. He accompanies me on my trips to NY and he truly is my rock. Snickers makes each day fun as we do our daily chores.
None of this would be possible withoutMAWP, their volunteers and my personal angel, chris.
Snickers and I are eternally grateful.

Make sure that the public is aware of the wonderful work that is being done by MAWP. Find someone who can do fundraising.
