Pawsible is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was co-founded by Vanessa Barker (CEO) and Cate Law (Senior Director of New Initiatives) in March 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. We are working on expanding our number of chapters and forming partnerships with other assistance dog organizations, while also focusing on internal growth and missioned-aligned practices. You can learn more about our current chapters here.
Pawsible's executive management is responsible for growing and maintaining the operations of Pawsible 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 fractured 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.
