To adopt or purchase homeless dogs for the explicit purpose of raising and training them to become Pawsitivity Dogs. 2. To provide life-long support to our clients and their Pawsitivity Dogs through training advice. 3. To ensure that any Pawsitivity Dog candidate who, after specific evaluation and training, is deemed unsuitable for service dog work, or that any returned or retired Pawsitivity Dog is adopted to a good home. 4. To work towards the availability of service dogs as a benefit to all disabled individuals. 5. To raise public awareness through informational and educational activities on the purpose and function of service dogs, the benefits they accrue to their partners with disabilities, the needs of people with disabilities which can be met with a service dog, and the rights and responsibilities of service dog partners under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
