Patriot PAWS trains and provides service dogs at no cost to disabled American veterans and others with mobile disabilities in order to help restore their physical and emotional independence. Any American veteran with a service connected disability can apply for a Patriot PAWS service dog. This service is also available to other Americans with mobile disabilities.
We are currently only accepting applications from veterans who served during Desert Storm to present for fully certified Service Dogs. Pre-Desert Storm veterans can apply for a social companion dog. These dogs can be very helpful within the home but DO NOT have public access.
When applying for a service dog, you could be waiting up to two plus years and that applying for a service dog does not guarantee the placement of a service dog.
To request a Service Dog Application, please complete our pre-screening application and Patriot PAWS will contact you within 21 days of receiving this application. Once an application is accepted, an interview will be conducted and every attempt will be made to find a compatible match.
