At this time we are only assisting clients who reside in Nova Scotia so that we can provide the best follow-up and be accessible to our clients and Service Dogs. Our main focus is our Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Service Dog program and our PTSD Service Dog program. In 2021, we launched our Autism Service Dog program. We train for civilians and military/first responders.
We do not charge for our Service Dogs. We do charge a $2000 training fee. This covers all of the Team Training, some equipment, and support. There is a $25 application fee which will assist in covering costs with training our dogs such as food and veterinary bills. * Applications are currently closed and no waitlist is being accepted. We will update our website when we re-open our applications.
Although not required, it is encouraged that clients assist in fundraising for a future client's Service Dog. There will be a training fee upon placement. This may include the necessary specialty harnesses and gear, initial food and other supplies. After placement, all costs associated with the care and upkeep of the Service Dog are the responsibility of the client.
K9PAD is a federally incorporated non-profit since 2016. We are volunteer based with no paid positions. This allows us to train our dogs for a much lower cost. If you are interested in volunteering, we have a range of positions that may fit your skill set and interests. Contact us to learn more.
