Paws for Healing is a 501 (c) 3 Non Profit Organization that started with Snickers, an abused runaway dog, who ran under Lisa Freeman's van nearly fourteen years ago. Since then Lisa has rescued numerous dogs in her path. She has worked with countless dog owners to help with behavior modification, dog obedience, puppy training, therapy dog certification, and service dog training. Now she's partnering with Animal Shelters and Dog Rescues to find loving, forever homes for dogs to avoid senseless euthenizations. She also is working the Animal Rehabilitation Kennel to train up service animals for disabled veterans.
LISA FREEMAN'S ULTIMATE GOAL is to have a large indoor training arena so she can train dogs and educate pet owners all year round, as well as do rescues.
Spring of 2013, Lisa was asked by a lady in the community to do something with her dogs to raise funds for cancer and abuse, this began the PAWS 4 HEALING WALK-A-THON.
1st Paws 4 Healing Walk-a-Thon to Stop Abuse & Cancer for People and Pets was a Huge Success!
IN LOVING MEMORY OF RUBY OUR MASCOT
Our Mascot Ruby who had breast cancer carried the torch bravely all summer long. She was full of spunk and vibrant energy, leading others to path in the woods for the walk kick off, although she'd just had her 6th bout of chemo treatments the week before! All summer long despite Ruby's blindness and failing condition, she remained upbeat and continued raising funds. She held on through the duration of the event! Just over a week after our Grand Finale--Ruby got her wings and entered into a glorious new doggy body in heaven. Our hearts and prayers go out to her amazing family who were just as strong as Ruby and fought the good fight--in fact they still are! In her memory they want to continue fighting so that other dogs and pets get the appropriate medical care they need when they are ill. Kudos to you Melissa and Harvey Wheeler! We love you and are in awe by your humbleness, hard work, and support through one of the most trying and difficult times in your life!
