PAWS WITH A CAUSE is a nonprofit organization that enhances the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities. PAWS breeds, raises, custom-trains, and places specially trained dogs for people who have physical disabilities,are deaf, have a seizure disorder, epilepsy, or for children 12 and under with autism. PAWS relies upon the generosity of donors. Clients do not pay any fee to apply for or receive their PAWS Assistance Dog which costs more than $30,000.00 to train. PAWS has placed more than 2,600 Assistance Dogs in their 35 year history. More than 300 families are PAWS Dog volunteers who house and raise these special dogs from birth until 18 months when they return to the headquarters for formal training. While the headquarters is located in Wayland,MI families from Plymouth, Canton, Northville, Belleville, Novi and Livonia have opened their hearts and homes to raising these special PAWS dogs.
