PAALS invites local veterinary clinics to participate in this program to help off-set the cost of medical care for assistance dog candidates by providing in-kind services for up to five dogs for one year. As a PAALS Valued Veterinarian, you would choose either a Health or Wellness package to provide services and care.
If you are a veterinarian interested in participating in this program, please contact our Development Coordinator:
PAALS is Looking for a New Home!
As we continue to grow in the number of assistance dogs whelped, trained and placed with people in need, we find we are outgrowing our current building which is a converted day care center. The mission of Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services is to enrich and empower children and adults with physical, intellectual, and emotional disabilities by training service animals and providing animal assisted educational, therapeutic, and recreational activities. We are accredited with Assistance Dogs International and Animal Assisted Interventions International. PAALS has been serving South Carolina residents with disabilities for 15 years. We need to have more space to expand our ability to serve!
We are hopeful for a bequest from an individual or estate of funds or property that can be converted for our use. Ideally, the property would meet the following criteria:
A therapeutic setting that is wooded, peaceful and quiet.
Location along the I-20 corridor between I-26 and I-77
Approximately 5-15 acres
Our main facility building needs to be a minimum of 6,000 square feet.
Facility with an open floor plan or one that can be easily reconfigured
Outbuildings would be fine.
This would be a wonderful legacy to provide help for those people who are challenged by disability.
