all purpose canines application process
If you are interested in applying for a service dog from All Purpose Canines, Inc., the process is as follows:
  1. Request an application either by email or telephone.
  2. Return the completed application with a non-refundable application fee of $45.00. It will be necessary for your physician to complete the medical information requested.
  3. Once we receive the application, our selection committee will review it and notify you of the results.  This process may take up to 30  days.
  4. You must have the ability to pay for the expense involved in owning a service dog. Some of these expenses are food, veterinary costs, toys and replacement equipment, etc.
  5. Our services include all the equipment needed for a successful partnership as well as follow-up consultations for the life of the dog. We are always available should you have any questions or concerns about the dogs behavior. You may conduct fund-raising events to assist with payment; however fund-raising activities must have prior approval from All Purpose Canines Inc. Further details may be obtained by contacting our office.
  6. We try extremely hard to match the "right dog" with the "right person". The matching process begins when the applicant is notified of the application approval. When a match is made, the dog will then be trained to meet the specific needs of its partner.
  7. A contract is signed at the time of placement stating the responsibilities of both parties.
