Introduction

Category: Community + Cause

Founded in 1996, Assistance Dogs Australia is a national charity that provides daily assistance to people with disabilities by training Labradors and Golden Retrievers to enhance their quality of life and give them freedom and independence. These highly trained dogs allow recipients to have greater mobility, gain confidence and reduce the need for a human caregiver.

Over 200 Assistance Dogs have been placed throughout Australia helping people in need.

Assistance Dogs are fully trained to international standards and are provided to clients with disabilities free of charge. Each Assistance Dog costs the organisation just over $30,000 to train over their two training period, and includes dog placement and follow up support. Clients include people with quadriplegia, paraplegia and developmental disorders such as multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy, through to children with autism and adults with mental health disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder and dementia.

Assistance Dogs are placed free of charge to people living with disabilities.

All partnerships include puppy sponsorship, media opportunities, staff engagement, corporate social responsibility recognition.
