It is the perfect opportunity to meet many of our teams and support our outreach in the community.

PawPrint Ministries has 36 comfort dog teams serving across central IL. Our volunteers dedicate countless hours to train their K9 to give back to our communities. We visit individuals in nursing homes, cancer care center, VA hospitals, schools, libraries, and are deployed to disasters and tragedies.

Many individuals want to know how to get involved or request our visit. Our website has all the information for booking a visit or applying to be a k9 handler.

We bring our dogs everywhere to spread joy!
