"Petting a dog and gazing into their eyes releases oxytocin (i.e. the 'love hormone') not only for you but for them as well."                                                                                                                 - author unknown

Check out our events below where you can come spend time with some of our dogs and their handlers.  Please be sure to RSVP to those events that require it and sign the attached waiver.

Paws for Patrick is a non-profit organization dedicated to connecting young people to emotional support animals to support them as they cope with mental health issues.


Our vision is to facilitate the acquisition of emotional support animals (ESA) for young people coping with mental health issues, by providing and sourcing the animals, as well as training and education, and securing letters of certification for ESAs. 


In addition, we provide opportunities for young people to interact with therapy dogs in group settings.
