Empowerment Through Paws: The Outreach Pawsabilities Story

Welcome to Outreach Pawsabilities, where compassion meets action in the quest to rescue, rehabilitate and find furever homes for dogs in need. Founded in 2018 by Kim Mikesell, our non-profit organization has been steadfast in rescuing dogs that come from dire situations. The impact is not only experienced locally, but Kim travels to other areas to rescue dogs who would otherwise be euthanized.

Kim Mikesell: Journey of Transformation with Dogs

At the helm is Kim Mikesell, our Executive Director, whose profound journey fuels the heart of our mission. Kim’s life reflects a tapestry of transformation, from her challenging past to her inspiring turnaround. Her commitment began with a personal pledge to alter her life’s course, an awakening that unfolded within the walls of a prison.

There, Kim discovered her calling while training service and therapy dogs, a path that led her to obtain an AA in psychology and multiple certifications, including AKC evaluator, obedience trainer, and service and therapy dog trainer.

A Vision Born from Personal Triumph

Kim’s passion blossomed into a lifelong vocation, driven by the understanding that hundreds of thousands of dogs are euthanized each year and that number continues to grow. These dogs that are broken have experienced abuse or neglect by their previous owners. She has witnessed the miraculous change in these little breathing, living creatures after showing them love, kindness, compassion, and training.  With over twenty years of experience, she has witnessed this incredible change within these dogs.  It was her recognition of this that sparked the creation of Outreach Pawsabilities.

Our Mission: To Rescue Dogs in Need

Outreach Pawsabilities is dedicated to giving a second chance to dogs on the brink of euthanasia due to medical or behavioral issues, understanding that fear often masks their true, loving nature. We believe that with patience, care, and a nurturing environment, over 80% of these dogs can reveal their gentle souls, ready to enrich the lives of those around them. Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate these deserving animals, fostering a community of compassion and support for our furry friends in need.
