We unleash the potential of shelter dogs by transforming them into custom-trained, life-changing assistance dogs for people in need.

Adopt a Rescue Dog

About Our Adoption Program

Rescuing dogs is core to what we do.  These amazing animals are given a second chance at life and many will go on to graduate as a Service Dog.

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

  • do not have the temperament to become a service dog
  • 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.  Consider making a difference by adopting one of our rescue dogs.

Adoption Protocol:

  • We request a quick survey before meeting a dog instead of a full application
  • Visit with the dog(s) you are interested in getting to know (if multiple people are interested in the same dog, there may be some wait time)
  • If you like the dog – fill out an application!
  • You will get a response within 24 hours from when you met the dog, and will have an additional 24 hours to pick him or her up from FSD.

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.
