Mission: Summit Assistance Dogs is a nonprofit organization that empowers people and animals to greater heights by providing highly skilled assistance dogs to people living with disabilities or institutions such as rehab centers and long-term care facilities that can benefit from their use. Summit trains dogs for mobility assistance, hearing and professional therapy for people of all ages (including children) .

Through partnership with an assistance dog, people with disabilities gain greater independence and experience more joy, often times pursuing career and academic goals that were previously unattainable.

Summit strives to acquire as many of its dogs as possible from shelters and breed rescue groups to help alleviate the pet overpopulation problem.

Summit presents educational programs to schools and is committed to including as many youth in our program as possible.
