Welcome to the My Angel With Paws website!
My Angel With Paws is a volunteer based non-profit 501(c)3 organization committed to expanding public understanding and knowledge of the needs of children and adults with disabilities through the rescuing, breeding, training, placement and continuing education of service dogs in the state of Florida.
Thank you to everyone who made our inaugural golf tournament a great success
Due to high demand, as of October 2019, we are no longer accepting new applications for service dogs. Please check back later.
We train dogs to help people with disabilities live fuller, more independent lives. To keep our quality high, we specialize in a few types of service dogs.
Mobility Service Dog - Assists with retrievals, opening and closing doors, turning lights on and off, etc.
Balance Brace Service Dog - Assists in maintaining balance while walking, getting out of a chair or off the floor, etc.
Seizure Response Service Dog - Trained to respond to an individual's needs once a seizure has occurred
PTSD/Psychiatric Service Dog - Helps alleviate hyper-vigilance, trained to respond during an anxiety attack etc.
Our program is special in a lot of ways. We focus on the temperament of the dogs, using positive training techniques and encouraging their natural desire to please. The placement program includes a small-group training course that takes handler-dog teams into public under staff guidance, so the humans can learn what the dogs already have. MAWP staff gives support before, during, and after placement to give our teams the keys to success.
A big thank you to Subaru of Daytona for featuring MAWP service dog Lennon in their recent commercial. Watch the video to see his acting debut!
