MEET THE FOUNDER

 

 

Heidi Spirazza, the Founder and Executive Director of Paws 4 Liberty, has had a lifelong passion for working with people and animals.  With over 20 years of experience as an occupational therapist, including more than a decade of using animal-assisted therapy to achieve functional independence for her clients, Heidi has seen how powerful the human-animal connection is and how having a service animal can increase a person's independence and enrich one's life. With her background in animal assisted therapy, Heidi knew that pairing returning veterans with highly trained service dogs could greatly enhance the veterans’ quality of life.  "Our service dogs are helping veterans regain their independence with the aid of their highly trained, four-legged 24/7 companion – their service dog. There is no modern, high-tech piece of equipment that can replicate all these amazing animals do for our veterans,” says Heidi.
