Who we are

Changing lives,
one bond at a time.

4 Paws 4 Patriots - Utah is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Ogden, Utah focused on training Veterans and First Responders to train their dog to improve their quality of life, free of charge. Our all-volunteer organization helps on average over 20 participants per year to live life to the fullest.

Our Work

Made possible by people like you

4 Paws 4 Patriots’ commitment is to provide a better life to our veterans and first responders, welcoming them back to a society that they have selflessly protected and defended.  Every dollar donated goes directly to services provided to these heroes and their dogs i.e., training, veterinary services and equipment. 

We could not provide these life changing services that impact our members’ lives without the financial and in-kind support of our community.  Your gift assures that we will be there for our veterans and first responders when needed.  Your gift will make a difference.
