"Opening doors. Helping someone dress. Navigating through traffic. It’s all in a day’s work for our dogs." -Dogs with Wings
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.
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.
Through our membership with the Assistance Dogs International we are taking an active part in the development of our industry, nationally and around the world.
Our organization exists to serve individuals with disabilities. Our clients are valued members of society who want to make a positive impact in their communities. Our job is to empower our clients through our programs to assist them in achieving their dreams and goals.
