The Online Auction Opens February 5th!

The Helping Paws Assistance Dogs Change Countless Lives Auction is now open. The auction will run from February 5, 2021 to February 14, 2021 with proceeds going to support the Helping Paws mission to further people's independence and quality of life through the use of Assistance Dogs.

Helping Paws is a Hopkins, Minnesota non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with 32 years of experience training and placing service dogs with individuals with disabilities or veterans/first responders with PTSD. These circumstances are often very isolating and can make everyday tasks frustrating or impossible. Helping Paws service dogs are trained to provide assistance with many daily living activities (about 80 commands in all) and offer much-needed companionship. We matched 15 new service dogs in 2019-2020. During our 2020-2021 fiscal year our goal is to match 15 new teams. Since 1988 Helping Paws has matched over 250 people with a service dog, giving individuals the gifts of independence and companionship. Helping Paws is one of two organizations located in Minnesota that are fully accredited by Assistance Dogs International
