4 paws is a nonprofit organization that trains and places service dogs with children to increase the independence of the child and assist the families.
Why Does This Work Matter? Without volunteers, 4 Paws would be unable to operate as an organization. Kids like the boy to the left who at the age of three was diagnosed with autism and struggles with communication, anxiety, and wandering off would not be able to seek comfort in a service dog.
