Welcome to PAWWS to Heal

We use interaction with our specially-trained therapy animals as a healing tool for children to work through emotional, physical and behavioral problems. When conventional therapy is unable to reach a child, animals and their unconditional love, trust, patience and support are used to assist in healing and to reach goals, which have been set by therapists, special education teachers, counselors, parents, and guardians.

PAWWS to Heal is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to children and animals. Through interactive therapy with animals, our services strengthen and improve the lives of children as they journey the path of healing from abuse and coping with physical disabilities.

Comfort in time of COVID-19

In times of uncertainty, small things can feel overwhelming, change is scary and sometimes unbearable. Animals are an amazing support for people going through times of hardship, change, and uncertainty, they offer, trust, patience, encouragement and unconditional love to start healing from emotional trauma. If you have pets or access to them this is an excellent time to spend time with them. The kindness and compassion animals give can change the course of your life. Stay safe and be kind to animals and each other in these unsettled times.
