Dogs for the Disabled was founded in 2007 due to a dire need for this type of service.
We listen, we care and everything we do, we do from our hearts. We are are determined to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come to us.
We have a very strict policy that no money passes hands for any dog for any specific child or adult. This is to ensure we retain legal ownership of each dog, which enables us to maintain their welfare and also so that there is no unfair advantage to anyone. However we ask post qualification that the families get involved in any way they can, so that another child or adult could benefit from a gift of an assistance dog like they did!
We are currently partners on two research studies – with TCD and the Dublin Neurological Institute – where an evaluation of the benefits of Assistance Dogs is being undertaken.
We are 100% committed to ethical breeding and training and treating everyone with dignity and respect.
