Charity: Paws 4 Liberty (P4L)

Contact: 561.845.3250   //   npb@excentricities.com

Paws 4 Liberty (P4L) is changing lives – one dog at a time. For disabled veterans and others in need, a trained service dog increases independence in daily activities and enriches their lives with a loyal companion. Since 2006, this nonprofit has been raising, training and placing service dogs whose skills include pulling a wheelchair, retrieving a telephone, providing physical support for balance and alerting deaf individuals. Says P4L founder Heidi Spirazza, There is no modern, high-tech piece of equipment that can replicate all these amazing animals do for our recipients. P4L now graduates eight to 10 service dogs per year, primarily Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers. The nonprofit works closely with veterans organizations and civic groups to identify suitable candidates among the hundreds of Palm Beach County residents who could benefit from the training and powerful 24/7 emotional connection provided by a service dog. As Spirazza says, It is a truly wonderful experience to be part of helping make others’ lives better, especially those who have given so much for our freedom.
