For people with disabilities, a custom-trained assistance dog from FSD can open the door to new possibilities. Instead of a life limited by difficulties, fears, and frustrations over what they cannot do, our clients and their service dogs discover all they are capable of doing—together. With their service dog at their side, FSD clients regain lost independence and feel more comfortable in crowds. They learn to reconnect with loved ones and take on challenges with confidence. They find that what was once impossible is now possible, and they experience greater self-esteem, happiness, and hope.
