For The Love Of Paws is an established 501c3 Non Profit Charity (47-3051354) which “Provides Peace of Mind to Senior Citizens when they can no longer care for their beloved Pet(s).” We also provide other programs benefiting Senior Citizens and their pets.
Additionally, we operate a large Paws Meals On Wheels program providing over 13,000lbs of Free pet food monthly to Individuals, Food Pantries, Home Delivery, and to both of our own fixed locations in Vero Beach and Fellsmere. We provide a Free Spay and Neuter program for Senior's Pets and a Precious Paws Veterinary fund to help seniors pay for veterinary expense. We also provide “Fur Real Kitty Pet Companions” to Memory Care facilities.
Which upon many requests, brought us to establish our “Therapy Dog Program”.
Currently, we have SIX nationally certified and Insured Therapy Dogs that are available for visits to Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Memory Care Facilities, Senior Centers, Schools, and more. We plan on having a total of Twelve teams.
Our Therapy Dogs are also available to any Law Enforcement Agency, School System or Organization after any type of incident, or just for a feel good experience.
All of our Therapy Dogs are Nationally Certified through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs and are fully Insured. Their handlers have all passed background checks. https://www.therapydogs.com/
There is No Cost to our Therapy Dog Program and it was established as a benefit to our Community. Please feel free to contact Ted Pankiewicz Sr if you have any questions or would like further Information on our Therapy Dog Program.
