Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We felt our city could use an additional resource for individuals in the disabled community. The access to free service dogs is very limited in the midwest. We began our mission with the goal of increasing awareness of the need for free fully trained service dogs as well as the overpopulation of our area shelters and rescues. we have over 40,000 disabled individuals living just in Tulsa and a vast majority of those who could benefit from a service dog that will bring them more independence and live a more freeing and active life. We always give a shelter or rescue dog an opportunity to try out our program. Dogs that do not meet the requirements are career-changed and homed to a loving family as a pet and we ensure they will never see a shelter again.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To provide free highly skilled service dogs to individuals with disabilities and rescue homeless dogs to train as service dogs.

With our assembled team of experts we test many dogs prior to program entry. If we find a dog that shines we put them through a 30 day training and exposure period to fully assess their abilities. Once that dog has moved up to full time training, it begins 1-2 years of service dog training. In the meantime, we are screening applicants who have applied for one of our skilled service dogs. Conducting phone interviews and adding to the waitlist. We pair dogs with an applicant based on their skills and abilities. We followup weekly and monthly with the applicants to ensure they and their service dog are getting the most out of their partnership.

We have assembled a team of people with skills in all areas including training standards for service dogs, puppy raisers, application processors, book keeping, IT, and the entire team is included in development to uphold the highest standards possible.

It takes 2 years to fully train a service dog. By the end of our second year (June 2020) we placed our very first service dog with a veteran. Next will be to place our first rescue service dog and to grow our team.
