What is Pawsible?

Pawsible is a future 501(c)3 nonprofit that was co-founded by Vanessa Barker (CEO) and Cate Law (COO) in 2019 to financially assist volunteer raisers of future assistance dogs who are required to pay for at least part of the basic needs of the puppy. These needs include dog food, vet bills, and other mandatory puppy raising supplies. To assist puppy raisers, Pawsible operates a Financial Assistance Fund funded and a National Pantry stocked with donated items. All operations are supported solely through donations and financial gifts that will be tax-deductible upon receiving 501(c)3 status that is currently pending.


Puppy raisers of assistance dogs, especially those in college or who are young adults, often struggle with the associated expenses. Pawsible’s mission is to not just assist those individuals and groups who are struggling, but also to advocate for a change to the system to financially support volunteers.
