WPP is solely focused on the rehabilitation and training of shelter [high kill] dogs which we have demonstrated that the need to breed belief controversial. With proper therapy, training and love we have paired servicemenbers, veterans, civilians and children with a service dog at a third of the cost with the same qualities of a “Window Store” Dog.  Still, empirical data is being gathered for subsequent publication with the input of trainers, veterinarians, and medical doctors for eventual discussions debunking the perceived opinion. ​

Our PAW is made up94 PAWsranging in size, including one RED PAW facing in the opposite direction, which represent the over over 8 million animals that are surrender to shelters in the United States with over 4 million that are destroyed .  The REDPAW is the number of dogs organizations such as WPP saves.
