Quality of Life Grants: 1st Cycle 2011: Actively Achieving

Summit Assistance Dogs
Anacortes, WA

This grant will help to fund the addition of a part-time dog trainer to help increase assistance dog placements for people with physical disabilities by 4-6 dogs each year. More than 30 clients are now on the wait list to be matched with an assistance dog, but at present staff levels, only 6-8 clients can be served each year. This means that clients must wait up to four years for the canine assistance they so desperately need. Adding a part-time trainer (with the goal to secure funding needed to transition the position to full time by April 1, 2012) will potentially decrease applicant wait time to receive a fully trained assistance dog by a year or more. Grant funds will support programmatic expenses. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338.)
