Our Purpose

Paws & Pals was created to bring prevention, recovery and continued healing to children and teens facing mental health and life struggles. Our behavioral and wellness program is built around our safe, all-inclusive community center filled with over a dozen healing activities for all ages. Our one-of-a-kind animal assited therapy program offers healing with the unconditional love of our therapy dogs, mentors and dedicated therapy staff.

We offer hope and healing to youth struggling with mental health issues at our behavioral and wellness facility. 

We call it “The DAWG Pound”

All-inclusive behavioral & wellness facility developed to build stronger communities through education, mentoring and animal assisted therapy.

My PAW Sam, makes me laugh and always lets me pet him when I feel sad or confused. He is a great friend to have!

Thanks Ms. Tonia for making a place where I can come and fit in with others that are struggling and just need a friend. Paws & Pals makes my days better!
