Puppy Sponsorship Program

Paws with Purpose has begun an exciting Puppy Sponsorship program to give our community partners an opportunity to join our service dogs in training on their journey from puppy hood to skilled companion for a person with a disability. As a Puppy sponsor, your business and its employees can be involved in the adventure that results in a new level of independence and an enhanced quality of life for children and adults with disabilities in our community.

Our puppies begin their training and socialization at 8 weeks old. Throughout the approximately two years of their training, the puppies live and train with their inmate handlers at the Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women (KCIW) Monday through Friday. Each weekend the puppies go home with volunteers from the community who take the puppies to lots of locations and activities for socializing, such as trips to the grocery store, mall, church or synagogue, movie theaters, restaurants, parks, festivals and seasonal events of every kind.

If you have ever seen our puppies in public, you know how much attention they draw. Imagine your company logo on one of our puppies' vest. For more information about how you can be a Paws with Purpose Puppy sponsor, contact us at Info@PawsWithPurpose.org or call (502) 689-0804.


We want to introduce you to Kiley! She is one of our most recent sponsored puppies. Kiley is proudly sponsored by Heine Brothers' Coffee. Heine Brothers' has not only chosen to sponsor Kiley for her two years in training but they have chosen Paws with Purpose to be their "Impact Partner" for the Quarter, July 1st through September 30. We are matched with their "Mountain Dream" coffee and for this Quarter, we will receive $1 for every lb. purchased. If you love Heine Brothers' coffee as much as we do, then choose this quarter to purchase your Mountain Dream blend coffee now!

Thank you, Heine Brothers' Coffee, for being such an AMAZING supporter of our puppies in training!
