Mission Statement

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

Eyes Ears Nose and Paws is a nonprofit organization that trains and places assistance dogs. Our programs create a healthier community by increasing independence for individuals with disabling medical conditions, improving opportunities for individual control over medical care, and encouraging therapeutic interventions that improve physical and mental health.

At Eyes Ears Nose and Paws, we recognize that dogs have a huge untapped potential: an astounding ability to read and understand human behavior, incredible noses for detecting scent, an enormous capacity to love unconditionally, a desire to learn and work with us --- to touch on a few possibilities. We believe in harnessing these capabilities and partnering with dogs to improve people‚Äôs lives.
