Leaving a charitable legacy through your will is a simple and impactful way of giving. In your will, you can choose to leave the ADS a specific piece of property, securities, cash or a percentage of your estate. By planning today, you can have a tremendous impact on the future by transforming child health and well being by giving hope to children and families for generations to come. Every gift in every will makes a difference, and your support will help us continue to make a difference one child at a time.
Other benefits include:
· satisfaction of providing a future gift while retaining control of your assets during your lifetime
· a charitable tax receipt to your estate
· an opportunity to honour or memorialize yourself or a loved one by establishing a named endowment fund
Leaving a gift to ADS in your will is simple. Speak to your lawyer about drafting or revising your will. Please consider letting us know that you are planning to leave ADS a legacy so that we can thank you today and ensure that your gift can accomplish what you would like it to.

ADS Puppy and Dog Adoptions
Adopt an ADS dog that doesn’t meet criteria to become a service dog! ADS puppies and dogs in training may be released from their training programs at any time. ADS puppies or dogs that do not meet standards for behaviour, health or temperament are disqualified and adopted out as companion or pet dogs to either their foster families or those who have been approved by ADS and are waiting on the adoption list. These dogs typically have minor health or behaviour problems and would make wonderful pet dogs.
Companion Dogs for Children or Adults with Special Needs
ADS matches companion dogs with individuals who would benefit from the companionship of a dog in their home. These dogs have been through a portion of the training process but were unable to complete the full certification for becoming a service dog. These dogs will not have any public access or a service dog jacket but would make a lovely companion for a child or adult. If you or a family member could benefit from a companion dog please complete the adoption form and indicate so on the related question on the form. If you have any questions please contact
Who can apply to be put on the adoption list?
Dogs are available to residents of the GTA, Cambridge, K-W, London, Windsor, and surrounding areas.
ADS has an adoption fee for the adoption of our released puppies/dogs to help ADS to cover expenses that the puppy or dog has incurred while in the ADS training program. For more information about adopting a disqualified dog contact or fill out the form below.

Autism Dog Services needs sitters to provide temporary care for their puppies and adult dogs in training. Sitters are responsible for providing a safe environment for ADS puppies and adult dogs. They are also required to love, cuddle, feed, groom and exercise the puppy or adult dog while it is in their care under the guidance and instruction provided by ADS.
Did you hear that Autism Dog Services has a new litter of future service dogs? Raising puppies is expensive. In fact, it costs about $5,000 to care for a new litter of puppies for one year. But for only 33 cents a day – less than a cup of coffee – you can help support our puppies to become ADS service dogs!
What happens in the 15 to 18 months that our puppy raisers are fostering our puppies?
Thank you for supporting Autism Dog Services. Together we can help foster the integration of children with autism by placing dogs that offer safety, companionship, and independence.
Give the gift of fostering a future service dog and help a child with autism in need today!
