Reviews for Austin Dog Alliance

Rating: 5 stars

My therapy dog and I just moved to the Austin area. Austin Dog Alliance came highly recommended by our former therapy dog group in Dallas. This organization does so many wonderful things for both people and dogs. The staff is simply amazing; friendly, courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable. Although I am a new member, I already feel at home and am privileged to work with some truly heroic people.

I have had the privilege of being associated with Austin Dog Alliance for the past several years both as a volunteer and as a client. The training staff has been wonderful with my rather difficult border collie. ADA is extremely supportive and appreciative of their volunteers.

I have been an active volunteer with Austin Dog Alliance for 9 years. Watching this non-profit grow and change to fit the needs of the community is what keeps me involved. They are not just a dog training facility,(although I have taken many dog training classes here and now have a wonderful therapy dog). Austin Dog Alliance has found a very unique niche for helping people, of all abilities, to understand that the bond between human and dog can be so rewarding. Using therapy dogs for Bow Wow Reading, visits to nursing homes and hospitals and even visiting university students stressed from studying for exams are a few examples. With the addition of the S.+C.O.R.E program (Students + Canines equal Opportunities for Rewarding Employment) and Hounds for Heroes, they are actively helping segments of our society that sometimes get forgotten and are under served. There are many volunteers like myself who have been involved for many years and will continue to volunteer to watch ADA continue to grow and be a major factor for a better human/dog community.

I've been a service dog trainer for over a year with ADA's Hounds For Heroes/Special Dogs For Special Needs programs. They rescue amazing dogs from shelters, rescue groups, etc. I've seen first hand how these dogs are changing lives in our community!

I have been a volunteer with Austin Dog Alliance for three years now. They certified my therapy dog and now we are able to volunteer around the Austin area at schools and UMC Brackenridge. They are extremely supportive and appreciative of their volunteers.

In addition to the pet therapy, ADA rescues dogs and trains them to be service dogs for Veterans and First Responders with PTSD. This program has helped so many individuals.

I highly recommend Austin Dog Alliance!

Austin Dog Alliance serves the community like no other place! At ADA, it is through the all-powerful relationship between dogs and people that changes so many lives. From vocational training, reading programs and the awesome PTSD Hounds for Heroes program- it is an extraordinary organization with a lot of heart!

I was introduced to Austin Dog Alliance through the CEO of my company. After "liking" their Facebook page and doing some more research I knew almost immediately that I wanted to be a part of this organization.
It is wonderful to be involved in an organization with such a strong dedication to making a difference in the lives of so many. Through the connection between dogs and people, ADA is able to offer many meaningful
programs to our community. I feel honored to be a part of a group that delivers such rewarding results to the community.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2013

I have been involved with the Austin Dog Alliance for several years now, it is truly a special organization that does so many great things to improve the community. ADA and the various programs it supports demonstrate the power of the connection between humans and dogs and the good that can come from it.

We LOVE ADA! They have outstanding training classes. The staff loves what they do and it shows! My son went to camp this summer and loved it! He is already talking about it for next year. I can't say enough about ADA!
