ASSISTED LIFE SERVICES
We train animals to assist people with varying abilities to live more independent and enriched lives by providing them with assistance dogs. We also provide Animal Assisted Intervention programs (AAI) throughout the state . Please explore our website to learn more about our dogs, our humans and our mission.

PAALS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We do not charge our clients training fees for our dogs. Your support helps cover over $35,000 of training, feeding, housing and medical costs for the 2 years it takes to train our Assistance Dogs.
