PawsAbilities is a “hands-on” element of our employment program, offering young adults the opportunity to develop and practice job skills. These skills include baking, packaging, marketing and distributing dog treats and toys. We are working intensively with post-graduate individuals who market our products to local pet stores, businesses, and other pet-related organizations such as rescues and trainers. This program is a natural fit with participants’ passion for animals and our Service Dog Training Program, and provides translatable skills and job training leading to future independent living.
