Assistance Dogs make a huge difference in the lives of trainers, owners, and clients. We aim to help acquire, train, and place dogs where they will make the best impact.
We recognize our greater responsibility to care for our community and our planet: we’re reducing our carbon pawprint, we support our local communities, and we manage our organization by following our mission and values. Learn more.
There are no application fees or good faith deposits. Thanks to our outstanding donors, we are able to offer these amazing dogs at no cost to our clients.
Certified professional staff train and place Assistance Dogs with individuals. Unlike most organizations who require you come to them, we go to the client and spend a week with them in their surroundings, learning about their routines, place of work, and unique community settings.
