Campus Expansion

A huge thank you to all our supporters!

The 4 Paws Campus Expansion is critical to the placement of more than 120 life changing service dogs each year with the children and veterans who need them.

4 Paws for Ability was founded in 1998 and has steadily grown over the years while we hold fast to our mission. Enriching the lives of people with disabilities by placing life changing service dogs. We are thankful for the staff, donors, volunteers and client who have joined us on this journey.

The year 2020 brought many challenges to 4 Paws and the world, but during this dark time we were also blessed with opportunities. 4 Paws was in the planning process in 2019 for a puppy house to replace the over 100 year old home that had been housing our youngest members of the program. This planning was restricted due to the size of the lot that we had available. Over the course of 2020, we were amazed to have the opportunity to acquire four additional properties due to the support of generous donors. On one of these properties was a 3500 square foot building that we were able to renovate as the new home for our puppies.

Presenting The Ability Center in Memory of Dorothy and Sue

The Ability Center in Memory of Dorothy and Sue is set up to provide our Puppy Enrichment Program to puppies from birth until they move on to their next step with our amazing volunteer trainers. While we still dream of a custom state of the art Puppy Enrichment Center utilizing all the new wonderful spaces that we now have, we are thankful to have a beautiful and safe place for our puppies! Many donors helped 4 Paws reach this step, as well as contributed to our future Puppy Enrichment Center. It is because of you that these big dreams are possible!
