Dogs with Wings:
Helping our client's dreams take flight.

In June 2017, Dogs with Wings launched our Ditch-the-List Campaign. Due to high demand, our on-line Client applications were closed to the public as we work to fill the needs of our current waiting list. Our goal is to raise $1.5 million to breed, raise, train and match 50 teams (dogs with Clients) by June 30, 2018.

By Dogs with Wings | December 14, 2017

Several years ago we heard about Dogs with Wings on the radio.  We avoided it because we thought it would be too much of a commitment.  What a mistake!  We’ve had DWW Toby for four weeks now, and the joy he’s brought our entire family, in such a short time is immeasurable.

DWW Spirit

Community

Dogs with Wings is responsive to our community, adding programs and services that our clients need. Beginning in 1996, we offered guide dogs for the blind and visually impaired. In 2003, we added service dogs in response to client demand. In 2007, we added our Autism Service Dog Program, then 1 of only 2 in Canada. Recently, we have placed a variety of facility and companion dogs to clients in all regions of Alberta.

Volunteers

We are also tied to our community via our volunteers who do so much for us. Since 1996, we have had literally hundreds of people assisting us by fostering our dogs in training. Today, Dogs with Wings operates puppy programs in Edmonton, Calgary, and Grande Prairie, with almost 300 active volunteers.
