BC & Alberta Guide Dogs endeavors to change the lives of individuals who are blind/visually-impaired, children with autism, and Veterans as well as RCMP and First Responders living with an Operational Stress Injury.
It takes two years and upwards of $35,000 to produce one certified dog, provided free of charge to the recipient. For these reasons we rely heavily on our generous and loyal donors as well as volunteers.
BC & Alberta Guide Dogs are always looking for volunteers as: Puppy Trainers, Adult Dog Boarders, and Office Support!
PADS breeds, raises, trains and supports certified assistance dogs, partnering them with people living with disabilities, and with community care professionals.
