ASA Service Dogs enriches our beautiful world!

The benefits of this nonprofit organization and its work are far reaching.


Recipients of the service dogs trained at ASA Service Dogs receive a loyal, forgiving, warm, soft, silly, playful, joyful being. The dog helps their recipient by performing unique tasks to mitigate their disability, supports daily routines, teaches responsibility, and provides companionship - it is an incredibly comforting and empowering feeling to know someone is there just for you!

The family and friends of individuals who receive service dogs from ASA also experience benefits. They receive the love, comfort, and laughter the service dog adds to daily life. They also get to see their loved one's lives improved; this may look like:

A daughter reading more often because she loves telling stories to her judgement-free best friend.

A mother diagnosed with PTSD able to safely wean off anxiety medications because the panic of being alone is gone.

An autistic child deescalating quicker during a meltdown with deep pressure therapy.

A granddaughter receiving an alert 15-minutes prior to an anaphylactic reaction resulting in less trips to the hospital.


Previously destined for the life of a pet or even living in a shelter, our dogs instead go on to become educated and cared for family members. Our dogs are called upon to do incredible work for their handlers. But this higher calling comes with perks; service dogs get to go places most dogs can’t. Our service dogs have fun, too! When not working, they may be resting, visiting other members of the family, playing with dog friends, exercising, or even on vacation.

We are incredibly proud of the value we add to our community through educational programs and events. A few of the programs we offer:


Members of our community learn how to train a dog - a unique skill that many pay thousands of dollars to go to school to learn! This program offers hands-on education that allows both kids and teenagers to get involved. Participants can learn valuable life skills, discover a possible career path, and all while accruing community service hours.

Our group of dogs, trainers, and volunteers visit schools, camps, clubs like Girl and Boy Scouts, libraries, and other events to teach kids (and adults!) about the awesome world of assistance dogs! We are excitedly spreading awareness about disabilities, the proper ways to interact with dogs, various dog breeds, and the awesome world of animal training. We give the kids an opportunity to read their favorite books aloud to the dogs. Kids with dyslexia, those lacking strong social skills, or children who just don't feel confident reading out loud, feel comfortable reading to our judgement-free, loving dogs!
