Our mission is to foster independence and integration for Albertans with disabilities by providing them with highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support.
About Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society
We offer five programs to serve our community: guide dogs for visually impaired adults; service dogs for youth and adults with physical disabilities or mobility issues; autism service dogs for children with autism spectrum disorder; facility dogs for teachers, psychologists, agencies and courtrooms; and companion dogs for service provision in the home.

Dogs with Wings operates with a small staff and relies on hundreds of volunteers who provide more than 100,000 volunteer hours per year.
