Review for PAWS Of CNY Inc., Syracuse, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PAWS of CNY are regulars at the Upstate Cancer Center. We now have six dogs that visit our patients during their treatment. PAWS of CNY has rigorous training with a specialty certificate for hospitals. They are always well behaved, know boundaries, and obey commands. We never have an issue with any of their dogs.

PAWS dogs and their owners offer comfort to many who are in need and for some, a reminder of home. There is one particular story of a patient who had been in the hospital for quite some time and they had to come to the Cancer Center for a treatment. That day we had one of our special pups and the nurses asked if we could stop by. Instantly the patient started crying saying that they missed their dog terribly and they could not see them due to their condition. There was not a dry eye among us after the visit.

Highly recommended non-profit who only train and use the best dogs suited for this type of work.
