Pets With A Mission

Enhancing the quality of life for individuals through the human-animal bond

Pets With A Mission, Inc. (PWAM) is an all-volunteer, charity organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals through interactions with our canine companions. In short what this means is our volunteer teams conduct animal assisted activities (AAA) with individuals at facilities and events where we're invited.

Our mission is a VERY large undertaking, so we focus mainly on these areas:

  • Child literacy: We use the R.E.A.D.® program to help children in schools and libraries improve their reading skills.

  • Hospital patients & staff: Hospitals can be stressful, but nothing brightens the mood like a visit from friendly dogs.

  • Senior citizens: We regularly visit senior and memory care facilities to boost their spirits.

  • Special Events: We support the community by attending charity and school events.
