trickAssistance Dog In Training, Trick, visits his namesake, Trick Trucks & Cars!

Trick, who turned a year old in June, went to hang out with the owners of Trick Trucks last week to show them how much he has grown and how well he is doing with his training!  He was looking quite handsome as he posed next to the truck, in the truck and on the new Weather Tech mats we purchased!

Our Assistance Dogs in Training need you to CLEAN OUT AND GIVE!!
Do you have things you want to get rid of???- Donate them to us for our annual yard sale- your house gets clean and you are able to help a worthy cause at the same time!!! 

We really need your gently used items to sell to raise funds for our wonderful Assistance Dogs in Training.  Things that are just sitting in closets, the garage, the shed or right in the middle of you living room that you don’t need could help pay for training equipment, Vet bills, food and many other things that we need at PurposeFULL Paws.

Many of us are blessed with good health, good jobs, nice homes etc.- please reach into your overflow of resources for the sake of those individuals with disabilities that need Service/Assistance Dogs.  Donate the things that you do not need and that others can use!

We can make arrangements for early drop off if you need to give us items between now and June 2nd please contact Tracy 540-877-6601 or Erin 304-270-6984.

PurposeFull Paws celebrated their first Assistance Dog Graduation Ceremony in Martinsburg, WV on May 6, 2017.

There were 7 Assistance Dog teams that walked for their diplomas to show what has been accomplished through their training and special bond!

The graduation felt like a family reunion to everyone at PurposeFull Paws!  We were able to spend time with the families and visit with the dogs we raised and trained to be successful Assistance Dogs.  The graduation ceremony gave us the chance to explain who we are, show what we’ve accomplished, introduce the dogs currently in training and to share our future goals.

At the reception afterward, the photographer took funny photos while we stuffed ourselves with delicious food!

We are so grateful to  ROCs Local Markets for donating our amazing meal of pulled pork barbeque and all the “fixins”, as well as to Martins Grocery Stores and Johnnies- Food, Equipment & Supplies for their tasty contributions!

It was an amazing day for PurposeFull Paws to share the excitement of our success with friends, family and sponsors!  THANK YOU  Nicole Barr Photography for the wonderful photos and  Memories in Motion for the video (to be posted soon!!) that capture the true joy of the day!  Thank you Westview Baptist Church for allowing us to rent the space, Ethan & Katie for running the equipment and to Sylvia, Bruce & Janice for making the reception wonderful!

A BIG THANKS to our VOLUNTEERS & SPONSORS for their help at the event and everything they do to make PurposeFull Paws possible!

Have you ever donated to a charity and wondered where your donation went?  Would you like to give to something specific so you know how your hard earned dollars are being spent??…

…THEN THE PURPOSEFULL PAWS FOOD DRIVE IS FOR YOU!!  EVERY DOLLAR DONATED GOES TOWARD FEEDING THE DOGS!!  Our dogs need dog food for meals as well as treats for training so they can learn their tasks.

In order to use our donated funds wisely, we purchase our bags of dog food and training treats through a distributor at a discounted price- which is such a blessing!  What does that mean to you, the donor?  All you need to do is click on the button on our website and put in the amount you would like to donate toward the food- no heavy bags to buy, carry or drop off at our facility!

Here are some creative ways to join in the fun with the PurposeFull Paws Food Drive:

  1. Office Teams– Get teams together at your office/place of business and see who can raise the most money toward a food donation
  2. Employer match-See if you can get your employer to do a “match” of funds that the employees raise to donate
  3. Sponsor a specific dog– Choose one of the dogs on our website to sponsor and raise the money for their food – for a month or for a few months or even a year!
  4. Get the kids involved– Tell your kids about the Service/Assistance Dogs and how they help people and show them some of the photos and videos on our website www.PurposeFullpaws.org and then give them some chores/jobs to do around the house to earn the money to donate to the dogs
  5. Buy a bag, Give a bag– During the months of March & April when you purchase a bag of dog food for your pet- donate a bag of dog food to PurposeFull Paws.
  6. Get local businesses involved– next time you are at a local business where you frequently purchase merchandise, tell them about PurposeFull Paws and see if they would like to get involved by donating.

If you are unable to give- you can always just get the word out to others that might be able to contribute- every little bit helps and we appreciate all of it!

Our goal total is $5000 to cover all of our dog food & treats for the whole year!
