ADAI dogs have changed the lives of countless individuals

“People feel comfortable approaching me because of my dog.” “I no longer have to use a walker. A warm, loving dog is in so many ways better than a cold piece of metal.”

  • Branden was professional with everyone at the agency. He interacted well with staff and was a great part of helping staff with tasks such as scanning, copying and filing. He was willing to take on any project and did each project well! The staff at the Epilepsy Center enjoyed the time Branden spent here and look forward to seeing more success for Branden as he moves on to the next step in his future.

  • “In no time, Ability Center staff was out taking measurements. The process began and I couldn’t believe how quick
    the process was.”
