Note: We are ONLY accepting applications from residents in Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma and Colorado for this program due to our location.
KSDS Assistance Dogs, Inc. is a non-profit organization that trains and places guide dogs for the blind and visually impaired, service dogs for the physically disabled, and facility dogs to work alongside professional educators. The dogs used for the program are screened and tested on their physical qualities, trainability, how well they adjust to new environments, and temperament. Some dogs will not pass these tests, so they are released and available for adoption. Other dogs available for adoption can include a retired guide, service, or facility dog. These dogs are in need of a stable and loving home.
To place your name on file as being interested in adopting a released or career change dog, please complete the following so we can find the best match for you and the dog.
Note: By completing this application you acknowledge that if a career change dog is placed with you / your family they will NEVER work as a therapy dog, emotional support animal, or in any other capacity. You acknowledge they will ONLY be a house pet who will never receive public access rights of any kind.
