What You Need to Know

Our mission is to educate and empower people to utilize Assistance Dogs to transform their lives. We sincerely wish we had unlimited funds so we could help every applicant. Please understand we receive many more applications than we have Assistance Dogs, Facility Dogs, or Emotional Support Dogs to place. A small number of initial applicants will be invited to complete a long application, and the remaining applicants will be notified that we are unable to proceed with their application.
