Paws As Loving Support (PALS) Assistance Dogs, founded in 2009, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life throughout our community by providing "Special PALS for Special Needs". Our specially trained dogs are placed as:

Service PALS to help children with autism and their families to assist with daily needs both in the home and community.

Facility PALS are placed with professionals working with children with special needs.

Social PALS, Therapy PALS, Reading PALS, and Comfort PALS Teams are certified to volunteer and serve the special needs of the community.

Courthouse PALS provide emotional support and comfort to victims and witnesses of violent crimes before, during and at the conclusion of a trial.
