Every year, Paws and Stripes is made possible by so many individual and corporate contributions from all over the state of New Mexico, and beyond.


For more than a decade, unwavering support from members of many communities that understand and champion our mission has ensured that our work might continue.


This mission is one that will remain critical as long as we continue to see more veterans succumb to suicide than military conflict, as long as service members continue to suffer military sexual trauma, and as long as veterans are in need of service dogs to assist them with their everyday lives. As long as these realities persist, so will we.


Paws and Stripes began in 2010 as a grassroots organization. We receive support from federal funding and donations from private donors, businesses, and foundations. That means that every veteran and rescue dog we serve has YOU to thank! 


As Guidestar Gold Member, Paws and Stripes has always prided itself on its reputation for integrity and transparency. As a 501(c)(3) it important to us prove this to our donors. We conduct an external audit each year from a licensed CPA to ensure the fairest practices and an accurate assessment of program funding vs. overhead costs.


As always, we thank you for your continued support for our Veteran Service Dog Teams.
