Mission Statement

We are a leader in the international community of assistance dog training schools. Our mission is to foster integration and independence for people with disabilities by providing them with highly trained assistance dogs and aftercare.

Description

Dogs with Wings is responsive to our community. When we began as Western Guide Dog Foundation, we placed only Guide Dogs. We added a Service Dog program in response to client demand. In 2007 we added Autism Service Dogs in response to the growing need for these special companions. Over the years, we have provided Assistance Dogs to all areas in the Province of Alberta.

We are also tied to our community via the volunteers who do so much for us. Since 1996, we have had literally hundreds of people assisting us by raising puppies, housing our adult dogs in training, and helping us with countless public events, fundraising ventures and the day-to-day business of running a not-for-profit organization.
