Assistance dogs make a huge difference in the lives of trainers, owners, and clients. We aim to help rescue, train, and place dogs where they will make the best impact.
Thanks to our outstanding donors, we are able to offer these dogs at no cost.
100% of your donation supports programmatic services. Administrative and fundraising expenses are fully funded by our endowment, specifically the interest earned from DBL’s long-standing investments made possible by our Guardian Society donors.
Certified professional staff train and place assistance dogs with individuals who are Deaf or who have hearing loss; with children who are on the autism spectrum; and with professionals such as teachers, physicians, and licensed therapists whose students and clients can benefit from the dogs’ calming presence.
We rescue, rehabilitate, and train dogs through the help of private donors.
Career Change Dogs are wonderful, adoptable dogs who are happy and healthy but just not suited to working for a living. These dogs make loving pets and companions and are looking for their forever homes.
