About

We are on a mission to help fund projects for non-profit organizations that raise, train, and place Assistance Dogs.  We support Guide Dog, Service Dog, Hearing Dog, and other Assistance Dog programs across the country accredited by Assistance Dogs International (ADI).

Our Giving Campaign

We partner with Assistance Dog programs and identify a specific project they are in need of funding for their volunteers, staff, facilities, dogs, or client service programs.

 

We give to these organizations through our collection of adventure-inspired goods, including outdoor and pet lifestyle products for those who share a passion for giving back to the community.

New Play Yard Gravel

Having gravel in their yards allows PAALS to sanitize the yards daily and prevent spread of a variety of parasites and bacteria to keep their dogs in training healthy.
