Invisible Paw Prints, Inc., is an organization led by compassionate volunteers who use their canine companions to provide heartwarming visits in support of local community organizations.
Become the called-on organization to provide therapy dog assistance to various communities throughout the United States today, tomorrow, and into the future.
Founded in 2016 and incorporated in 2017 by Rob Kortus with the influence of his Border Collie, Sophie. The stories of Sophie and her encounters are in Rob's first book, Invisible Paw Prints. Hence the founding organizations name. “Sophie will leave behind no paw prints, only trails of human smiles, happiness, hope, and love.” (quote from the book). Invisible Paw Prints is recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC). We are 100% volunteers. Nobody is paid a penny.
