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.

~ Tour of the Training Facility~
~ Gift Shop~
~ Live Dog Demos~
~ Learn about our Volunteer & Foster Programs~
~ Meet future DWW Assistance Dogs!~ 

There’s no need to register to attend our Open House, as tours will be held throughout the day.
The Open House is a free event, although our Organization is accepting donations in support of our five Assistance Dogs Programs.
Looking forward to seeing you at this family-friendly event!

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 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.
