Our Mission

Service Dogs Alabama is dedicated to providing medical and psychiatric assistance dogs to children, adults, and Veterans with disabilities and School Dogs trained to assist educators and counselors with student interventions that create drama-free classrooms.

 
 

Our Impact

In the process of fulfilling our Mission, SDA rescues 50+ dogs a year, rehabilitates 50+ inmates a year who train our dogs in prison, changes the course of the lives of children, adults and Veterans with disabilities, and alters classroom dynamics.

Service Dogs Alabama, formerly K-9s 4 Kids, is a nonprofit organization serving families in Alabama and on the cutting edge for solving problems for shelter dogs, prison inmates, people with disabilities, and our educational system.
