Does anyone know where i can get a service dog i cannot pay for it i was hoping to get it donated. The quality of my life will be so much better with a service dog. Please let me know if you know where i can get one.:):apple:

I believe there are low cost and agencies to help you get a dog, and train and work with it. It's a tough job and not all dogs can be a great service dog so best to make sure you don't end up with a house full of dogs on your journey to get one that works best.

Here's links to some groups that you should contact:

Patriot PAWS | Service Dog Training

Freedom Service Dogs | Rescuing Dogs, Transforming Lives

Hero Dogs Inc | Service Dogs for Wounded Veterans

4 Paws for Veterans - 4 Paws For Ability

Military Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs and Companion Pets ~ Veterans

Good luck!

CfH works with shelters and rescues in my area, and they've got a good reputation.

Where do you live? What do you need the dog to do for you?
