The mission of the Society is to foster the independence and integration of people living with disabilities and enhance their quality of life, by providing highly skilled guide and assistance dogs.
About Our Charity
Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society is one of only eight accredited training centres in Canada and the only one operating in the Prairie Provinces. We offer five programs: service dogs for children living on the autism spectrum, guide dogs for visually impaired adults, service dogs for youth and adults with physical disabilities or mobility issues, companion dogs for service provision in the home, and facility dogs for schools, agencies and courtroom use.
Dogs with Wings provides assistance dogs at no charge to the client. All costs of breeding, raising, fostering, training, placing and providing ongoing client support is covered by donations and fundraising activities. Dogs with Wings receives no core government funding.
Dogs with Wings operates with a small staff and relies on hundreds of volunteers who provide more than 100,000 hours per year.
