Who We Are
Pawsitism Inc. is a new nonprofit in the Sheboygan area that is training Autism Assistance Service Dogs for children with autism. We are able to do this by partnering with the client’s family to train, educate, and fundraise money to help provide a dog to help with their child needs. Each family is asked to fundraise money to put back into the program before receiving their service dog and the rest of the money comes from our generous donors.
Pawsitism Inc. works with Golden Retrievers, Goldendoodles and now Bernedoodles! Volunteer Puppy Raisers raise our puppies up to 18 months to provide basic obedience training, socialization and care.
The benefits of an Autism Assistance Service Dog are proving to be truly remarkable. They assist people on the autism spectrum with completing daily tasks, preventing someone to wander, acting as a calming presence during overwhelming situations, and companionship.
There are currently no other Autism Assistance Service Dog programs in the area so we hope to fill that gap.
