Paws & Think is an organization that I just recently became aware of. Paws & Think partners dogs from shelters with at-risk youth, who train the dogs in basic skills to increases their chances of being adopted. They also have programs where certified dogs provide pet therapy, AND have a program where dogs are trained to become assistance dogs to people with special needs.
I am going work as a volunteer at their next Youth Program, and am going to the upcoming event this Sunday at Bark Tutor in Broad Ripple to learn even more about their programs. I may even enroll Skyler in classes so that she can become a part of their pet therapy program.
