Pawsitivity passes CRC standards!

After a lot of hard work, Pawsitivity Service Dogs has passed the Charities Review Council's wonderfully rigorous standards!

Trademark registered

U.S. trademark Serial # 87-238,582, Reg. No. 5,259,653.   "The mark consists of a red heart with a paw-print inside." It's official! Pawsitivity's red-heart/silhouette-paw logo is now officially approved by the US patent office as our registered trademark, exclusive to the charity!

Thank you to our mentor, Al Peters, Executive Director or Can Do Canines, for suggesting that we do this step!
