Adopt a Rescue Dog

boy & adopted rescue dogRescuing dogs is core to what we do.  These amazing animals are given a second chance at life and most often they will go on to graduate as a fully certified Service Dog.

However, in some cases, dogs are released from our training program because they either:

  • do not have the temperament for full service dog certification
  • may be timid, easily distracted, or unable to resist chasing the occasional squirrel
  • their x-rays or eye exams indicate they cannot complete service dog certification to help a physically disabled person in the long term

All dogs that come through our doors receive a second chance at life.  They do not return to shelters. Consider making a difference adopting one of our rescue dogs:

FSD requests a minimum adoption fee of $300-$500 depending on the dogs level of training to help recover a portion of the medical and evaluation expense incurred with each dog.

All dogs are current on distemper combo, kennel cough, rabies vaccinations, have a microchip identification, and are spayed or neutered (unless otherwise noted).  Most dogs have had eye examinations; many have had hip, shoulder, and elbow X-rays.
