PFL First Responders Program

Paws For Life K9 Rescue's newest program is our First Responder Program, training Therapy Dogs. Combined with the dog's innate abilities to provide comfort with a stringent training schedule to learn 25 commands. This training process ensures the dog can be safely taken to any scene and provide comfort, consolation, and support regardless of environmental changes.

Firefighters often work and live as a group for multiple days. But at the end of the day, when exhaustion is so prevalent, our therapy dogs are a welcome visitor back at the station!

Support 10,000 Tails

When you support our work with an automatic, monthly donation, you are giving hope to the animals, 365 days a year. Your recurring commitment saves lives!
