Guide Dog Services

BC & Alberta Guide Dogs is a registered charity. Their mission is to meet the growing demand for professionally trained Guide Dogs and Autism Support Dogs for citizens of British Columbia and Alberta, at all times meeting or exceeding international standards as established by the International Guide Dog Federation and Assistance Dogs International.

Autism Support Dogs, a division of BC & Alberta Guide Dogs, provides professionally trained dogs to children with autism aged 3-10 and their families, at no cost to the recipient. The goal is to improve the quality of life of children with autism and their family by providing a trained Autism Support Dog. It takes up to 2 years and costs our charity up to $35,000 to produce each autism support dog. This organization relies on the generosity of donors to serve citizens of British Columbia and Alberta so that they can provide these dogs free of charge to families.
