Ken, havingparents who are deaf, and Ellen, a teacher forstudents who are deaf, were immediately drawn toPAWS’ mission and knew they wanted to give back.After returning to Michigan, the Milnes openedtheir home to a PAWS Puppy in 2003.Their experience as PAWS Dog Volunteers inspiredthe Milnes to support PAWS financially. “We,thankfully, have been able to meet several of theclients our puppies have been placed with,” sharedEllen. “Seeing the independence that those dogshave given their clients encourages us to do morefor the organization. We believe it’s important toput our money where our hearts are.”The PAWS Best Friends monthly giving programprovides an easy, convenient way for the Milnes togive on a regular basis. “I would encourage anyonewho has any question about whether or not theywant to volunteer or donate to listen to a client’sstory,” explained Ken. “This is why we do it.”Since joining the PAWS family nearly 16 years ago,the Milnes have been loyal donors and volunteersraising eleven PAWS Puppies and housing a MamaDog.

Alan and his Service Dog ROXIEare inseparable. Since the dayAlan met ROXIE, she’s been hisright hand. ROXIE helps Alan, whohas cerebral palsy, with tasks such asopening doors, turning on lights, andgrabbing items from his book bag.The two became a Client-Dog Teamnearly eight years ago and they’vetraveled everywhere together in thattime: from Disney to Detroit Lions andDetroit Tigers games. But perhapsthe most remarkable thing about thepair is that both Alan and ROXIE arecollege graduates.ROXIE was by Alan’s side all threetimes he crossed the stage duringcommencement. She was there atDelta College, where Alan receivedhis associate’s degree; at SaginawValley State University, where AlanLOOK WHAT WEACHIEVEDand ROXIE each received a bachelor’sdegree; and at Central MichiganUniversity, where Alan received hisa Master of Business Administrationand ROXIE was mentioned duringcommencement. “All those milestones,graduating from college – I wouldn’thave been able to do that quite as wellwithout her,” explained Alan.The “unmeasured level ofindependence” ROXIE gives Alanis something his father, Brian, saysprovides him and his wife great peaceof mind. But “doing the tasks she’sbeen trained to do is only part of thestory,” he added. ROXIE also supportsAlan by giving him the confidence heneeds to be independent.This confidence inspires Alan toserve as an advocate for serviceanimal teams. While completing aPhoto Credit: Central Michigan UniversityAlan and hisService Dog ROXIEare an inseparablepair at CMUgraduation.college co-op in human resources ata Fortune 500 company, Alan sharedhis story with the company’s DisabilityEmployee Network in front of a liveaudience of nearly 150 employeesand executives. The presentation wassimulcast globally throughout theorganization.But of all the incredible things this duohas achieved together, Alan’s favoritememory with ROXIE is the day theymet. “I was kind of nervous, but onceI met her for the first time, all of thatwent away,” Alan shared. “She has abig heart and her personality is kind ofoutgoing like mine.”Your gift to Paws With A Causeempowered Alan, giving him theconfidence and independence tofollow his dreams – THANK YOU!Paws With A Cause pawswithacause.org 616-877-7297 4646 South Division, Wayland, MI 49348
