Eyes Ears Nose and Paws


Welcome to EENP's volunteer site! Your help changes lives -- whether the lives of our inmate-trainers as they learn to shape our pups into highly-skilled assistance dogs, or the lives of our clients, who have the support of canine partners to assist them in their daily lives. You might even find that the experience of volunteering changes your own life...

Mission Statement

Eyes Ears Nose and Paws partners people with dogs to improve lives.

We collaborate with the correctional system to train assistance dogs that we partner with people who have disabilities. Our inmate-trainers develop interpersonal, leadership, and job skills while giving back to the community despite their incarceration; and our clients receive life-changing support for their disabilities in the form of a highly-trained canine partner.

Our Service Dogs assist people with mobility impairments.  These dogs assist with a wide variety of daily tasks, including retrieving items, opening doors, operating buttons and switches, and helping prevent and recover from falls. Our Medical Alert Dogs are trained to detect and alert to changes in medical conditions such as diabetes; retrieve medical kits; and get help in an emergency.
