Pacific Assistance Dog Society.
PADS exists to help individuals facing the challenges of a physical disability (other than blindness), by raising, training and placing life changing assistance dogs. PADS support these successfully matched teams throughout their working lives. PADS trains 3 types of assistance dogs: Service Dogs for people with physical disabilities, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf or hard of hearing and Facility/Therapy Dogs for therapeutic placements in long term care, group homes, hospitals and schools or Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) settings. In addition to the critical skills/services the dogs provide on a daily basis, they
also provide a sense of security and act as a social icebreaker to those who may otherwise feel marginalized by their disability.
