Q&A

Is this breed specific?

We will use adult shelter dogs of specific height and weight with some breed restrictions. 

How will you acquire dogs?

We will be searching at local shelters and working with rescues that we have an established relationship with to seek candidate dogs to evaluate.

Do you help people train their own dogs?

Helping an owner train their own dog is under discussion. 

What is the cost?

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). 

How long will I have to wait for a dog if I apply?

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.

What sort of training will I have to go through if I get a service dog?

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. 

Disclaimer: Due to applicant criteria and limited resources, not every individual who applies for a service dog can or will be served

Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
