Dogs of EENPEyes Ears Nose and Paws is a nonprofit organization that trains and places assistance dogs. Our programs create a healthier community by increasing independence for individuals with disabling medical conditions, improving opportunities for individual control over medical care, and encouraging therapeutic interventions that improve physical and mental health.

At Eyes Ears Nose and Paws we recognize that dogs have a huge untapped potential: an astounding ability to read and understand human behavior, incredible noses for detecting scent, an enormous capacity to love unconditionally, a desire to learn and work with us --- to touch on a few possibilities. We believe in harnessing these capabilities and partnering with dogs to improve people’s lives.

Service Dog Program

Our Service Dog program provides trained dogs to assist individuals with mobility impairments with daily activities such as opening doors, retrieving items, and turning lights on. Service Dog partnerships encourage independence which, in turn, offers more opportunities, dignity, and privacy for people with mobility impairments.

Medical Alert Dog Program

Diabetic Assistance Dogs use their noses to assist individuals with diabetes by detecting fluctuating blood sugar levels and alerting their handlers to these changes, preventing hypoglycemic comas and helping diabetic individuals to better regulate blood sugar levels. Diabetic Assistance Dogs can rouse a sleeping handler or, if needed, alert another person to the medical emergency.
