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.

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 our client list.

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 by fostering our Dogs-in-Training. Today, Dogs with Wings operates puppy programs in Edmonton, Calgary, and Grande Prairie, with over 250 active Volunteers.

Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society

A great initiative by our friends at the Royal Alberta Museum!

“We recognize that museums can be very overwhelming spaces – with all the crowds, sounds, smells, and screens.

In an effort to make RAM accessible for all visitors, we've created a new space: the Sensory Room. This room offers families a quiet space with calm lighting and soft seating. For individuals with sensory processing differences, this space provides a safe space to calm down and have a better visit at the museum. This is also a safe space for individuals looking for a place to recharge, reflect, or pray.

The Sensory Room is located inside the Human History Hall, and is available to anyone who needs to use it during regular museum hours. We also have Sensory Kits and a Sensory Map available to use during your visit - inquire at the Admissions Desk.”We recognize that museums can be very overwhelming spaces – with all the crowds, sounds, smells, and screens.
