4 Paws For Ability Inc Complaint


Ridiculous website business

I stumbled onto their web page through Pet Finder and they stated they were in dire need of foster homes. So I applied and filled out all the paperwork to be a foster. After waiting over a week I was told that I was not allowed to foster because one of my dogs was too old and they were afraid it would upset the puppy. My old dog is a Lab, the same dogs they use in their program, and he is also a retired service dog. So why aren't they concerned about when their dogs get older in the homes they place them with?

In addition to this they state that they use rescued dogs, but in fact when I was talking with them, they said that most of the dogs they train for service use are from their breeding program, NOT rescues. I think they should be removed from Pet Finder especially if they are breeding more dogs, and not rescuing and adopting them. Isn't that just adding to the dog population program?

Our service dog from 4Paws for Ability came from a shelter in Kentucky. He's a lab and when I went back to help another family the woman who brought Fred to 4Paws from the shelter was there . She told me Fred's story and was thrilled to see him working so well.

They do breed puppies also. I believe a line of their Golden's is particularly good at seizure alert,but a good number of the dogs are rescues. They also try to accommidate families who have children with allergies which requires certain breeds.

Not all of the dogs make it as service animals. The requirements are stringent. But the ones that are up for adoption have had excellent vet care ,are well trained and any conditions ,like hip dysplasia are well documented.
for every sour grapes complaint ,you will find hundreds of families that are forever grateful to Karen Shirk and 4 Paws for Ability.
I've been 3 times now,for our dog and two more times to help other families.
They are amazing. I have to scratch my head over these statements. I first contacted 4 Paws over 4 years ago and it's been a wonderful ride ever since.
BTW the families are encouraged to keep in touch through a Facebook group and waiting families are part of that.If this was a scam wouldn't everything be hush hush? I've made some of my very best friends through 4 Paws.
