Are you a member of a company or group looking to help 4 Paws for Ability for a day?

Our Group Volunteer Program is designed for groups looking to help one time, for a few hours. This program is perfect for scouts, company volunteer days, college/high school service projects, or church groups looking to volunteer in their community. Group volunteer visits generally include a presentation about 4 Paws’ history and mission, a tour of the building, and service projects around the facility. There is limited dog interaction due to the absence of 4 Paws’ volunteer training in this program. Email the Director of Volunteer Engagement ( to start planning!
