Social Distancing is tough. The coronavirus pandemic has greatly impacted
fundraising efforts and scratching the 6th Annual Derby4Dogs
fundraiser would result in the loss of critical revenue that supports
paws4people foundation and their Clients. We can’t let them down. Our Clients
are extremely vulnerable in the best of times. We want to be certain that funds
are available to continue training and providing tools and resources for our
Clients, their families and the Assistance Dogs that transform lives every day.
Thank you for supporting paws4people and the Clients they serve.
Celebrating 20+ years!
