Kathy Ellis is the face of Hands to Paws. Our organization makes a difference because she makes a difference. Kathy has many accomplishments to her credit in the field of education, including a doctorate of education, 20 years of classroom teaching special needs learners, and 15 more years of teaching teachers in special education. Currently, she teaches visually disabled children.
As President of Hands to Paws, her passion is rehabilitating dogs with social disabilities. Although she is a certified dog trainer, her dog whispering abilities truly come less from a special diploma and more from how special she is within.

Hands 2 Paws is always in need of various supplies.... I know some people like to donate items instead of money as they like to immediately see the results of their donations. If anyone would like like to help us with these items we would greatly appreciate it. We have included vendors that we frequently use and know that have good prices, but if you have other options that is fine.
Items can be shipped or brought directly to Hands to Paws, 1727 Forest Creek Rd, Augusta GA 30909
Also, we are trying to provide our dogs with Kuranda ShelterBeds. These highly durable beds are made specifically for animal welfare and hold up to heavy chewing and digging. They provide a clean, safe, comfortable resting place for our dogs. To donate a bed, please visit https://donate.shelterbeds.org/348295 . Your donated bed will be shipped directly to us.
