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

Adopt a Dog

About Our Adoption Program

Since 1987, Freedom Service Dogs of America has believed that dogs have the ability to become amazing service dogs. We are proud to partner with primarily shelters and rescue groups to identify dogs that have the potential to make great service dogs. Of the dogs we take in, only one in four or five will become fully-trained service or therapy dogs. The remaining dogs go into our adoption program so that we can find them loving homes.   

They have been released from our training program because they:

  • do not have the qualifications to become a service dog
  • may be timid, easily distracted, or unable to resist chasing the occasional squirrel
  • have x-rays or eye exams indicating they cannot complete service dog certification
  • may require advanced behavior modification

All dogs that come through our doors receive a second chance at finding their calling in life. Consider making a difference by adopting one of these special dogs!

Please note that most of our adoptable dogs have not gone through service dog training. They are NOT service dogs. The amount of training they have had varies. To make them successful family pets, behavior modification may be required, and guidance from a professional trainer might be recommended.
