Abstract

Arctic Paws For Service is an organization of dedicated Alaskans, whose primary activity is to provide trained service dogs to Alaskans with disabilities to promote independent living. Our service dogs are currently trained specifically for Mobility Assist, Seizure Alert, and Autism Assist. Arctic Paws for Service is dedicated to providing in-home training, and continued support to promote the success of a Service Dog with an Alaskan family or individual. Due to our regional isolation in the United States, Arctic Paws for Service is devoted to providing Service Dogs to Alaskans from Alaskans. Our mandate is to reduce costs to recipients and to increase availability, accessibility of services, and on going  support for our clients. Our focus is to provide service dogs for Alaskans with Disabilities. Every facet of our operation supports this commitment.  Each dog is carefully evaluated for its ability to provide the appropriate assistance and companionship needed for each person we serve.
