Quality of Life Grants: 2nd Cycle 2008: Actively Achieving
Power Paws Assistance Dogs, Inc.
This grant will help to fund the addition of one full-time trainer to expand program services and provide more precisely-trained assistance dogs for clients with disabilities, provide follow-up care classes and home visits to new graduates, and work with clients who may be having problems adjusting to a new assistance dog. Assistance dogs are placed with children and adults with disabilities such as spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and syringomyelia. This grant was funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
