We are an exceptional and elite group of highly trained therapy dog teams that offer pet assistance therapy. Based in San Antonio, Texas, we evaluate and train all interested dog teams in the San Antonio and surrounding areas. We currently have therapy teams based out of Texas, North Carolina, and Washington. Our teams provide smiles and encouragement, as well as physical and emotional support for many.
We visit hospitals, nursing homes, rehab centers, military facilities, schools, and other specialized facilities - where ever our physical and emotional support is needed most. Our working therapy dogs are making a difference one paw print at a time.
Paws 4 Hearts Working Therapy Dogs was formed in 2010 by a group of dedicated and experienced therapy team volunteers that shared a vision of educating the local communities about the benefits of animal therapy and sharing our wonderful dogs with those who need them the most.
