The Gift of Your Time Can Help Change Someone's Life

Thank you for your interest in Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs. It takes up to two years, sometimes more, before a Golden PAWS dog meets his/her match. During this journey, there is much to be done. Each job is important and requires commitment and dedication to our mission.
