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 Service or Therapeutic Companion dog training at no cost to  U.S. Military Veteran's, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, and EMS personnel living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury.  Hero P.A.W.S. can evaluate your current dog for training if it meets our criteria or provide a dog from a local shelter or rescue for the training. We have trainers in Sierra Vista and Tucson. 

What We Do

Making A Difference

We believe in giving back to those who have given so much.  We provide assistance at a no 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 and 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.
