4 Paws for Ability

Each year Acme Canine Resource Center solicits nominations for a charity to sponsor through our fundraising events. This year’s selected group is 4 Paws for Ability. Located in Dayton, OH, and founded by Karen Shirk,  4 Paws for Ability is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to place quality service dogs with children with disabilities and veterans who have lost use of limbs or hearing; help with animal rescue, and educate the public regarding use of service dogs in public places.

Providing Service Dogs to Children Worldwide

4 Paws for Ability enriches the lives of children with disabilities by training and placing quality, task-trained service dogs. This provides increased independence for the children, and assistance to their families. This year, Acme Canine is sponsoring a dog in training, Chewbacca, a 5-month old Goldendoodle who is set to graduate in December. Proceeds from Acme’s events, such as Woofie’s Retirement Party on May 4 and Spike’s Pool Party in August, will go toward the cost of housing and training this lovely boy! If you’d like to learn more about 4 Paws for Ability and the services they provide, you can find them on their website, www.4pawsforability.org, or by mail, e-mail, or phone at:
