FACT:

Approximately 4 million dogs enter animal shelters every year.

FACT:

Every 1 in 3 veterans suffer with PTSD and other mental health issues.

Wounded Paw Project provides service dogs* to these individuals and veterans to help them recover from the trauma [of war] and transition back into a normal life.
*Service, Emotional, Therapy, Comfort, Mobility, Sexual Trauma, Courts, etc.

Our motto is "Saving A Paw, to Save A Life."
We are a three-tiered organization:

Protect

Be the voice for the voiceless - animal abuse is a precursor of crime notably the mass shootings which has become more prevalent.

Advocate

Ending dog fighting - the gateway to thugs, drugs, prostitution, human trafficking in the United States with an average age of 13.

Wagployment*

Providing training for service, emotional support, therapy animals, comfort, mobility etc. - emptying out shelters.

We are not a rescue; however, our focus is on saving dogs from high-kill shelters so they can be given a second chance at life. In addition, we take the hard cases such as bait, tortured, and abused dogs, that most likely would be euthanized at a kill-shelter.

About Wounded Paw Project

Wounded Paw Project (WPP) is dispelling the belief that shelter dogs are not practical candidates as Service Dogs. This notion is based upon the idea that by breeding, one can control temperament, wellness, and longevity. Anthropological data does not support the idea that upbringing and race/color influences level of performance or - more importantly - constructive contributor to society. Shelter Dogs exemplify the military creed [dogma] of "Service before Self".

*Service, Emotional, Therapy, Comfort, Mobility, Sexual Trauma, Courts, etc.

WOUNDED PAW PROJECT IS A 501(C)(3) NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.

CONTRIBUTIONS ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
