I couldn't be more pleased to be able to partner and support Patriot Paws Organization, a Texas based non-profit that's mission is to train and provide service dogs of the highest quality at no cost to disabled American Veterans and others with mobile disabilities and PTS in order to help restore their physical and emotional independence.
Lori Stevens a professional dog trainer started Patriot Paws in 2006 in a small store front in Rockwell, TX. Today they have almost outgrown their warehouse facility and are looking to expand once again. In 2008, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) came on board and together they implemented an inmate service dog training program. The inmates learn how to teach the all of the required basic service dog behaviors and then move on to teach new inmates the skills to do the same. The results for the inmates and society are extensive.
Not to mention the opportunity to serve our heros that have sacrificed so much to keep our nation safe and make their lives easier and more joyful.
Everytime a piece of art either an original or a print sells from my, "It's All Gone to the Dogs" series a portion of the profits is donated to the Patriot Paws Organization to help them further their mission.
