Merlin's Kids is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and relies on donations in order to place our service dogs with diabled Veterans, Children and Adults. It takes approximately 1-2 years to evaluate, rehabilitate, train, place and follow up a service dog at a cost of $15,000 - $25,000; consequently, Merlin's Kids must have the best interest of the service dog in mind when placing that service dog with a qualified applicant.
Therefore, Merlin's Kids reserves the right to deny any applicant at any stage of the process in aquiring a Merlin's Kids service dog. We also reserve the right to remove a placed service dog from a recipient for the following reasons which include but are not limited to:
Additionally, all service dogs placed remain the property of Merlin's Kids during the initial 1 year probationary period.
While Merlin's Kids does not anticipate any of the above mentioned problems, we must inform all applicants of these possibilities.
Furthermore, completing and application does not guarentee that the applicant qualifies for a service dog
