A Facility Dog is trained and placed with an individual who is an employee of a facility that works with “at risk” populations. Typically, the dog is used as a therapeutic tool by the handler, helping to initiate a response from the residents, patients, or clients of the facility. These dogs have exceptional patience and temperament for working around all types of individuals. Although specially trained and certified, Facility Dogs do not have public access and do not fall under the protection of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
If you are in need of a Facility Dog, please fill out an application questionnaire to begin the process.
If you would like to help provide Facility Dogs at no cost to facilities who assist “at risk” populations, please consider making a gift.
