Paws For Assistance Inc.

Paws For Assistance is a non-profit organization based in Towson, MD that trains shelter dogs to provide service for humans suffering from PTSD.

The mission of Paws For Assistance is two-fold. The first is to help humans heal from the traumas of life including war, sexual assault, domestic violence and sudden physical disability. The second is to rescue shelter dogs that have been abandoned or abused. Both dogs and humans can experience the debilitating effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We have found that strong bonds form
