Misc info: PAWS for Greatness is an organization that pairs up at-risk teenagers with rescued dogs. The kids work with the dogs each afternoon for 6-8 weeks training the dogs and focusing on positive things. This not only helps the kids to re-focus, but also helps train the dogs and prepare them to be adopted out to their furever homes. -- If transportation is needed, Chelee (contact info below) can work with you so that we can get you to and from the base without needing to pay anything
To sign up/get more info: Please contact Chelee Puder (PAWS Volunteer Coordinator) via text or call (940) 447-1779 or e-mail at chelee_puder@bcbstx.com
