Our Why

At least one in ten people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with an eating disorder in their lifetime - that’s nearly 30 million people. Only 10% receive treatment due to systemic and financial barriers.  One person dies as a direct result of their eating disorder every 52 minutes, and this mental illness has the second highest mortality rate of any psychiatric condition


Free Support Groups

SoulPaws offers free clinician-led support groups with licensed therapy animals to people with eating disorders. Groups may involve a variety of animals (Miniature horses, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats). Our trained facilitators guide participants through the three pillars of SoulPaws: Calm, Connect, Heal.


Who We Serve

Eating disorders affect people of every racial, gender, and cultural identity as well as all abilities and sexual orientations. To date, SoulPaws has provided free support groups to more than 300 individuals in California and Pennsylvania. Workshops support different stages of recovery and enable participants from all walks of life to come as they are and take what they need.
