Providing Service Dogs to Veterans in Need

About Us


Our Program

The Paws Healing Heroes Program was established in 2016 by The Griffin Gives Foundation.  The mission of Paws Healing Heroes is to raise money, through community events and donations, to provide service dogs, primarily those in shelters, to Veterans in need.


Our Founder, Mark Eberle

Paws Healing Heroes was founded by Glassboro native Mark Eberle, an Army Veteran who suffers from the affects of war.

Mark’s mission is to raise money in order to provide service dogs to Veterans in need. These service dogs are primarily found in rescue shelters.   “My hope is to rescue dogs that need forever homes and have them determined eligible to enter a training program. The training program enables them to be certified to work with Veterans depending on the needs they have.


Our Mission

The results of the Paws Healing Heroes program have proven to be successful. We’ve seen immediate changes in the Veterans to whom we have given back. Their demeanor and ability to focus on allowing the dog to do his/her job has made them feel more comfortable with their day-to-day lifestyle. We encourage you to help us make a difference.

The Paws Healing Heroes is a program owned and operated by The Griffin Gives Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit foundation providing opportunities and experiences to support our mission to give back to military families.
