With so many veterans returning from war, and rates of disability increasing, the demand for service dogs has never been higher. The waiting list for a service dog nationwide averages 6-10 years. It is our mission to increase the number of dogs we pair each and every year, but we need your help.
We will take care of the routine veterinary care, grooming, heartworm preventative and flea treatment. You will be responsible for feeding the required diet, collar and leash, providing appropriate toys and tons of love. Not only are your expenses tax deductible, but your selfless contribution is beyond measure.
While this future service dog is practicing family life in your home environment, you will also be attending a training class once a week with this future hero. We will be providing you with valuable training information prior to taking the dog home and all the way through his or her stay with you.
After a few weeks, this young service dog in-training will come back to our facility, be assigned to a recipient, and begin his advanced, customized training. You will have the honor of being one of our VIP’s at the "Passing of the Leash Ceremony" where we symbolically pair the recipient and their service dog.
Apply now to help Guardian Angels train these amazing dogs for those in need. By becoming a Foster Family, you will be helping us get our dogs one giant step closer to meeting their future recipient!
Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc., was created for the charitable purpose of raising, training and then donating highly skilled service dogs to mentally and/or physically disabled people to provide assistance, independence and improve their quality of life. In addition, it is our goal to promote education and pioneer research studies to further advancement of service dog training, raise public awareness regarding the laws pertaining to service dogs and lessen the dependency of the disabled on government, communities, caregivers and families.
We raise, train and donate our dogs to the disabled. The dogs learn high level skills such as opening/closing doors, turning on/off lights, picking up dropped items, alerting, assisting the hearing impaired, etc. Since we are a non-profit, we depend on volunteers to help us with various business and fundraising tasks. Additionally, we need Foster Families and people who enjoy loving, playing with and taking care of dogs at various ages.
