There are a variety of ways that you can help support Paws With A Cause. The organization is always looking for families to raise future assistance dogs. Currently there are 80 puppies that need homes by the end of March. If you are interested contact Julie Thornington at email@example.com.
If you are looking to take in a newborn puppy you can apply to be a foster family (application here) . These families give Paws For A Cause pups a loving home until the age of 12 months. At that point they are then passed along to a training family.
