Would you recommend Assistance Dogs International?

by Randy P. from Lakeville, MN (February 17, 2017)
Donor/volunteer Advisory: Further investigation and due diligence are warranted and highly encouraged with this organization. My direct experience with ADI during their "accreditation" process has shown me that ADI's relevancy and competency has declined in recent years; that they lack the ethical, disciplined, and structured business practices critical to keeping up with the rapidly growing field of Assistance Dogs. I've found that the vast majority of assistance dog organizations are choosing NOT to affiliate with them.
