Paws With A Cause® breeds and custom-trains Assistance Dogs for people with physical disabilities, hearing loss, seizures and autism. An Assistance Dog helps someone with a disability complete essential tasks so they can increase independence and improve their quality of life. By helping open doors, pick up objects, pull a wheelchair or alert them to sounds, barriers are broken down. The Assistance Dog acts as a constant companion and makes a person more approachable, allowing them to gain confidence while bringing peace of mind to their loved ones.learn more
