Abstract

Located just outside of Wellington, Florida, Paws 4 Liberty, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is dedicated to helping restore the lives of wounded veterans as they struggle to adjust to life after war. The mission of Paws 4 Liberty is to help returning soldiers regain their independence and confidence through the assistance of trained service dogs. With a primary focus on post 9/11 veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS), Paws 4 Liberty carefully screens, trains, and matches service dogs with qualifying veterans at no cost to the recipient.  While some service dog organizations have their own breeding program, Paws 4 Liberty does not breed dogs. All the organization’s service dogs come from local animal shelters or rescue groups or are donated to the organization.
