Be A Volunteer

We need you.

BECOME A SHELTER PARTNER

If you work or volunteer at a shelter and have a special dog that you think would be a good match for a veteran in need, submit a video and biography of the dog to shelterpartners@pawsofwar.org

Dogs must be:

  • Rescued/shelter dogs
  • social
  • healthy
  • eager to please
  • good with other dogs and all people

We will consider your rescued dog for our program once we have received all the information you can provide. There are no restrictions, however we are inundated with groups wanting us to accept more pit bulls and pit mixes into the program. We are a pit bull friendly organization but already have more than enough for the program.

The Paws of War Mission

To train and place shelter dogs to serve and provide independence to our United States military veterans who suffer from the emotional effects of war, such as PTSD. In turn, veterans can experience the therapeutic benefits and love that only an animal can bring.
