Apply for a Pets with a Purpose Dog

A Pets with a Purpose Dog can provide your family with a well trained and loving pet that can also potentially benefit a family member with a disability.

PAALS first tries to match Pets with a Purpose (PWAP) dogs with families that have a family member with a disability who can benefit from a safe companion. Families with a child or adult with a disability often can benefit from one of these highly trained dogs for the purpose of companionship. Although the dog is not permitted to wear a cape for service, they still serve as a loving family pet. These dogs do NOT have public access rights.

If you are interested in applying for a PWAP dog, please complete the online application. Once your application is received, we will contact you about the PWAP program.
