Review for Assistance Dogs Of America Inc, Swanton, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Scarlet and I were partnered in 2007. The training she received through Assistance Dogs of America, Inc. and nearby prisons has created a phenominal assistance dog. Scarlet has become the bridge between a person's anxiety about my disability and me. She helps me perform daily tasks that would be much more difficult, if not impossible, without her. Scarlet is my means to independence and she has opened doors of opportunity for me that had previously been sealed rather tightly. The Assistance Dog of America family of staff, volunteers and graduates respects me as an individual and holds me accountable for the care of a dog they worked so hard to train. Collectively, they are a model from which the rest of society could learn.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the partnering with an assistance dog.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

wish to develop a stronger and more consistent revenue stream such that facilities could be expanded, more staff could be hired, and more clients and more graduates served.

Very Well

How did you find this group?


What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

Because of the assistance dog Assistance Dogs of Amrica awarded me, I no longer feel the need and anxiety to have to do more just to be accepted. My dog is extremely loyal and accepting despite my need for assistance.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Client Served & I received an assistance dog that changed my life for the better.
