4 Paws WSU runs the service dog fostering program on campus. We are born of a partnership between local nonprofit 4 Paws for Ability and Wright State University. Students that are unable to handle but would like to lend their support in other ways are more than welcome to join the group as an open member.
So far we've had the following puppies on campus:
Raisin Cream Pie
The puppies are around 3-5 months when we receive them and we foster/co-handle them for 1-2 semesters.
Our biggest part as fosters and co-handlers is the socializing which is to make sure they are being introduced to as many new and different environments as possible.
The dogs are allowed anywhere with you: the mall, class, work (where food isn't prepared), restaurants, movie theaters, and any other place you can think of.
We have been the 3rd college campus to bring this wonderful opportunity to our campus here at WSU.
There are a number of jobs that a service dog can be trained for at 4 Paws, those are:
FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) Assistance
