- People and Paws for Hope
Our mission is to create a safer, more humane community dedicated to the well-being of people and animals through compassion, education and legislation.
Our vision is to create definitively integrated programs that will offer youth from ages 5-18 years flexible and non-threatening alternatives to at-risk behaviors by stepping outside themselves through proven Animal Assisted Therapies (AAT) and Activities (AAA). Given the opportunity for at-risk youth to enter into interactions with dogs when they are at a personal crossroads has been proven to spark profound individual motivation that changes the trajectory of their lives.
