Give Us Paws is a Service-Connected, Disabled Veteran Founded, Texas, Federally recognized 501(c)(3), nonprofit corporation based in Houston that provides free, in-home training and certification of eligible candidates' existing dogs as service animals for disabled veterans, especially with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)/emotional disabilities. We also provide services to disabled adults and children eligible under the ADA, but veterans receive priority for funding and training. We concentrate on funding our training of service animals with handlers suffering from PTSD, diabetes and limited mobility issues in order to improve the quality of their lives.

There are thousands of returning veterans suffering from PTSD having issues adjusting to normal life. Last year, the VA cut all funding for service animals of veterans with PTSD and there's a large gap that needs to be filled with extremely limited resources. To acquire a trained Service Dog can cost $20,000.00-$30,000.00; the waiting lists can be multi-years long, programs for training and funding for that training are scarce. We provide an in-home training program free of charge to our disabled veterans, if funds are available for training. Our program costs $3,000.00-$5,000.00 for civilians.
