Three Cheers for 4 Paws for Ability

4 Paws for Ability is a non-profit www.organization that trains and provides service dogs for those with disabilities. Severity of the disability or age does not matter to 4 Paws. Dogs are trained according to their recipient and are able to assist with those who are autistic, need mobility assistance, have hearing issues, need seizure assistance, emotional support or other issues. Since 1998, 4 Paws has placed over 500 dogs with those who have disabilities. The only eligibility requirement for this program is that the individual requesting a service dog has a disability that is defined by the American's with Disabilities Act of 1990. 4 Paws is known across America and throughout the world for their work with children. It uses a three-unit team (parent/caregiver, dog and child) with the adult being in charge of the dog in all public places. This organization is also known for its highly trained Autism Assistance Dogs, which is one of the very few that offer such service. Although 4 Paws doesn't give aid dogs to individuals freely, each family that needs a dog is asked to help raise at least $13,000. Generally the fundraising takes three to nine months. It costs an average of $22,000 to train one dog so the minimum fundraising requirement isn't that high to get an assistance dog. Families engage in fundraising activities with the organization since volunteers for 4 Paws qualify for a "free" service dog. More information about this organization can be found on its website as well as an application for the program.
