Apply For a Dog

Please Note:
We regret to inform you that Dogs with Wings is currently NOT able to accept new applications due to a high volume of current applicants. The application process will be re-opened once we have fulfilled our existing wait list. This will allow us to better serve our clients who are waiting for placements. Thank you for your patience and please check back frequently for updates.

This page applies to those looking for an assistance dog, volunteers please visit our volunteer section.

The process to get a Guide or Assistance Dog from us has a number of steps. We will want to know about you, your living arrangements and family or other supports. We also want to meet with you in your home so we know what tasks you require in a Guide or Assistance Dog. We also want a report completed by your medical professional detailing your need. If you need more information on our dogs available please visit our assistance dogs page.

*Please note that Dogs with Wings will only place dogs with Canadian citizens ordinarily resident in Alberta.*
