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.
