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.
