Autism Service Dog To Be Placed Free Of Charge - In Recognition of Autism Awareness Month

In recognition of Autism Awareness Month, Animals for Autism will be placing, free of charge, a highly-trained autism service animal with a child or an adult with an ASD who is in need.
April 2, 2011 - PRLog -- Animals for Autism was founded by the parents of children with autism.  The incredible difference having autism service animals made for their children changed their lives.  Rather than training show dogs, as they did years ago, their passion now is improving the quality of life for those with ASDs through the use of  autism service dogs.  Every autism service animal trained and placed by Animals for Autism is put through a rigorous training program designed to meet the specific needs of the individual with whom it will be placed.  Anyone with and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who is in need is encouraged to apply.  The application deadline is April 30, 2011.

Our board and panel of experts will evaluate all of the applications and make a decision based on level of need, amount of benefit to be derived from the a service animal and the appropriateness of a service animal placement with the applicant.  All panel decisions are finial.  For further information and application packets, visit

Animals for Autism also offers a standard autism service animal program for those seeking quality service animals with reasonable placement fees.  Through the generosity of various donors and many volunteers, Animals for Autism is able to place their highly-trained autism service animals at a fraction of the traditional required donation fees.  All puppies placed in the program are donated by a group of distinguished breeders of AKC and UKC show animals.  The specific animal chosen for placement with a candidate depends greatly on that individual's needs.
