Mission Statement

The mission of the ASA Service Dogs 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization is very simple in concept, yet complex in execution; the potential outcome is limitless. Our ongoing goal is to place exceptionally trained service dogs in the home of children and adults that have physical and/or mental disabilities. This incredibly beneficial resource is not always obtainable to those individuals that need a service dog the most. With the assistance of outside resources, our organization strides to offer service dogs at a significantly reduced cost to qualified individuals.

Description

ASA Service Dogs offers an effective and significantly beneficial resource for physically and/or mentally disabled individuals. We provide uniquely trained service dogs that perform specialized tasks for the disabled child or adult; resulting in an enhanced quality of life for the dog, the recipient, as well as the recipient's friends and family. ASA provides PTSD, Autism, Mobility Support, Peanut Allergy Alert, Wheelchair Assistance, Hearing Alert, and Psychological Service Dogs custom trained for the unique needs of each recipient. Here at ASA Service Dogs, recipient/handler education and superior quality training is not only the standard, it is our passion.

My son has been a Jr Trainer with ASA for over two years. Our family also puppy raises for ASA (we have our 4th puppy now). We love everything about the program and I cannot say enough good things about ASA and Amanda. Jr Trainers typically meet once a week with Amanda to learn new training techniques and practice with the dogs. The classes / program is free and can count toward volunteer hours for school. My son enjoyed it so much, we decided to puppy raise as well. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
