To foster the therapeutic benefits of the human animal bond, impact social emotional learning for youth, and restore hope to families impacted by mental health and substance use disorders.
The unbreakable bond between a boy and his dog became the catalyst for Project Paws.
Struggling with Tim’s absence while he was attending a therapeutic wilderness program in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a miniature dachshund found his way into our home and hearts. We chose the name Tip, short for Timothy Patrick. Tip became a lifeline, a beacon of hope during a tumultuous time. I began to see the endless opportunities animals held for helping humans heal. It only seemed fitting that our first project, Project Paws, focused on the bonds of human-animal interaction.
