Our Impact: This year, we have served over 1,600 individuals with special needs throughout Maricopa and Pima Counties. Our amazing group of 140 volunteers has given over 4,000 hours to Pawsitive Friendships and the special needs community.
Our Results: Our specialized goal-oriented curriculum helps individuals work on their fine and gross motor skills, motivation, executive function, social and emotional skills, communication and social skills, and so much more. We recently asked parents about our program, and 85% of parents stated that they see a positive change in behavior or attitude when their child has Animal Therapy.
Our Future: Our 2024 goal is to enroll 1,800 individuals in our program. Additionally, we are looking to expand our service population by taking a deep dive into what defines the term “special needs”. Currently, we are serving the Developmental Disabilities area, but as an organization, we understand that it is just a small portion of the “special needs” population.
Your Help: None of this is possible without the community's support. By donating to Pawsitive Friendships, you are helping us expand our reach in 2024.
