What is Pawsible Inc?


Pawsible Inc. 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 with financial gifts and a Puppy 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. 


Pawsible’s Assistance Council manages the applications and allocation of assistance to individuals and chapters. We are working on expanding nation-wide and forming partnerships with other assistance dog organizations. You can learn more about our current chapters here
 

The Executive Suite is responsible for growing and maintaining the operations of Pawsible Inc. and reports to the Board of Directors who ensure that Pawsible is effective in the pursuit of our mission. As an organization we seek to change the destructive volunteering model that is standard in the nonprofit industry where volunteers are expected to contribute financially on top of time and effort contributions. 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.
