Mission Statement

Susquehanna Service Dogs (SSD), a program of Keystone Human Services, trains and provides assistance dogs and facility dogs to assist children and adults with disabilities to become more independent. SSD is a fully accredited member of Assistance Dogs International.

Description

Our assistance dogs give people the confidence to live more independently and do things they didn’t think were possible. These dogs change lives.

A program of Keystone Human Services, Susquehanna Service Dogs breeds, raises, trains, and places service dogs and hearing dogs, as well as facility dogs, to assist children and adults with disability to lead the lives they want to live. Founded in 1993, we have placed over 350 assistance dogs throughout Pennsylvania and the surrounding states.

We work hard to match people and dogs to form a successful partnership and follow each team for the working life of the dog and through the dog’s retirement. Whether our assistance dogs are retrieving dropped items or helping their partner navigate a crowded store, they’re assisting their partners to live full, rich, meaningful lives.


Our volunteers make it possible for us to breed, raise, train, and place life-changing assistance dogs. We currently have over 400 volunteers who collectively give over 40,000 hours each month to our program. Whether they’re raising puppies or painting a fence, volunteers are making a difference and helping to change lives.
