Pawsitivity Service Dogs is an award-winning 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in St. Paul, Minnesota.
A person with autism, PTSD, or epilepsy is 400% more likely to die in any given year. We are in a mission to change that.
Here, Palmer keeps her girl with autism safe from bolting into traffic. Another dog, Doby, saves his handler's life by waking her to warn of drastic drops in her blood sugar. Harley guides his man with a TBI and PTSD home after flashbacks leave him close to catatonic. Pawsitivity trains these hero dogs who calm meltdowns, provide a social bridge, bring people out of their shells, and foster independence.
Pawsitivity Service Dogs transform lives.
Accountability is important to you and to us.
We’ve taken the 100% pledge. 100% of every dollar you every dollar you donate goes to the dogs.
Minnesota Loves Pawsitivity

Strong Local Partners
We work with strong local partners, and the Minnesota Wild professional hockey team selected Pawsitivity as Charity of the Month to get the word out about the benefits of service dogs for our veterans, children, and all people with disabilities.
