Service Dog Access
Animal Assisted Therapy
Ways to Help
We will use adult shelter dogs of specific height and weight with some breed restrictions.
We will be searching at local shelters and working with rescues that we have an established relationship with to seek candidate dogs to evaluate.
Helping an owner train their own dog is under discussion.
For a dog from the organization, there will be no cost. If we assist owners, there will be a fee for service (again to be determined).
Since we are just starting out, there will be a ramp-up period before dogs will be ready to be partnered. We expect this to be about 10 months, possibly longer.
Approved clients will be required to attend training in Wilmington, NC for up to eight (8) days. It is our goal to provide lodging and meals during this time.
