  1. My spouse and I are both vets and we appreciate that this organization helps those who have protected us reintegrate back into society. In addition they do this with pound puppies.

  2. Paws & Stripes has changed my life, I am a current enrollee. I have PTSD, TBI and mobility issues dues to traumatic injuries that resulted in prosthetic’s. I have found purpose again, anytime I’m down I just look in the eyes of my Myrna and she lets me know it will be okay as long as we stick together.
