Hero P.A.W.S. Welcomes You
We are a 501 (c)(3) non profit founded to assist the growing needs of our Arizona heroes. Hero P.A.W.S. proudly provides services to U.S. Military Veteran's, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, and EMS personnel living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to train their own Service or Therapeutic Companion Dogs, or Hero P.A.W.S. provides this assistance at low cost to the qualified individual in Sierra Vista, Arizona.
What We Do
Making A Difference
We believe in giving back to those who have given so much. We provide assistance at a low cost to our heroes suffering from PTSD, in the form of training shelter dogs or their own dog to become a Service dog or Therapeutic Companion dog. Our Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, EMS personnel as well as Military Veterans living with PTSD can benefit from the unconditional love that a dog can give. Once an individual is accepted into our training program, they will be paired with a dog adopted from a local shelter, or with a dog already owned by them. They will live and train together from that point forward. Training includes basic obedience, public outings and tasks specific to each individual's PTSD symptoms.
Helping Our Heroes
“It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.”
