The Wild West Party with PAALS

PAALS trains animals to assist people with varying abilities to live more independent and enriched lives by providing them with assistance dogs. Some of our specially trained canines are taught to turn lights on and off, tug open doors, pick up dropped items and alert for help to assist individuals in wheelchairs. Other dogs go on to assist children with autism and soldiers with PTSD to accomplish therapeutic and real life goals. These dogs are primarily placed in and around South Carolina.
During the two-year training period required to produce a service dog from a puppy, PAALS also provides programs for underserved youth, seniors, and individuals with special needs. Some examples of programs that use puppies in training include an integrated camp for youth and special needs individuals for assistance dog training, outreach visits to retirement homes, and educational programs for youth.
