NOTICE: Freedom Service Dogs is closed to the public through the end of April, at which time we will reassess.  All onsite volunteer opportunities are suspended until further notice. Our dogs are receiving exceptional care thanks to our dedicated volunteer fosters and puppy raisers. FSD staff members are working from home and available by email and phone. For assistance, please contact or 303-922-6231.

Your donation can help provide dog food for the 83 FSD dogs and puppies in our program at this challenging time.

Help us raise the next generation of service dogs.

At Freedom Service Dogs, we unleash the potential of dogs by transforming them into custom-trained, life-changing assistance dogs for people in need.
