About Us

About Our Organization

Our dogs are protected by the Service Dogs Act, RSA c. S-7.5 and the Blind Persons' Rights Act, RSA c. B-3, in the Province of Alberta.

Our vision is to transform lives and advance the Service Dog sector. Our dream is wellness and support for all.

Our mission is to foster integration and independence for individuals and social service agencies by providing them with highly trained Assistance Dogs.
