Senators Fischer and Booker Reintroduce PAWS Act

The PAWS Act directs the VA to implement a five-year pilot program to provide service dogs to veterans who were diagnosed with, and continue to suffer from, PTSD.

Veterans would receive follow-up support from the service dog provider for the rest of the dog’s life.
