PAWS WITH A CAUSE!!
Many people who have disabilities, will need help running
life smoothly. Fortunately, there is a organization
called… Paws with Cause! Paws With Cause, trains dogs
to be a personal assistant for people with disabilities. For
example, a person in a wheelchair might drop something,
and might not be able to pick it up. Their Paws with
Cause dog will pick it up for them. You might be
wondering how the dogs are trained, and when they are
trained.
First,the owner of the dog will try to train their dog. Then
they will take the dog to the Paws with Cause
Organization, and basically donate the dog. Then a Paws
With Cause trainer will train the dog according to who
they are going to help out. For example, if the dog is
going to help out a deaf person, the trainer will try to
teach the dog to understand sign language! Also, you
might be wondering when the dogs start to get trained.
They start to get trained when they are tiny babies. So if
you have a disability, don’t worry, go to Paws with
Cause! By: Smriti S.

IMG_1088Students had an assembly this week called “Paws With A Cause”. This organization trains and pairs service dogs with disabled people. It is a wonderful organization which helps people with disabilites become more independent with the help of a service dog.
Here is an article by one of our students about this experience.
