We would like to express our gratitude to Unity for Autism for their generosity and support for funding a grant to ADS to provide support to children with autism and their service dogs. Thank you from all of us at Autism Dog Services.
Please Email Us for information on donating a puppy to our program.
The following breeders have generously donated puppies to the ADS program. We are so thankful to have a partnership with them and are very grateful for their ongoing support!
AdoptionsAdopt an ADS dog that doesn’t meet criteria to become a service dog! For more information about adopting a disqualified dog contact Director, Canine Development or fill out the form below.
ADS puppies and dogs in training may be released from their training programs at any time. ADS puppies or dogs that do not meet our criteria for behaviour, health or temperament are disqualified and adopted out as 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.
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 of $1,500 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.

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!
