Service Dogs by SDWR, Inc. is a fully incorporated 501 (c) (3) organization.
Service Dogs by SDWR is committed to changing the lives of those living with invisible disabilities such as Autism, Diabetes, PTSD, and Seizure Disorders. We believe that, “Until there’s a cure… There’s a dog!”
It is important for the public to know that people whose lives might be improved or even saved by having a service dog, may have a disability that is not visible. Individuals who struggle with invisible disabilities often will benefit from having a canine companion in their lives to enhance the quality of life, provide hope, independence, and peace of mind. It is our mission to provide those individuals with life saving alert dogs and service dogs to improve their quality of life.

In addition, Service Dogs by SDWR, Inc. will host fundraising and community programs to help spread awareness and grow our programs, thereby reaching more families and providing increased access to our services.
