What makes Guardian Angels unique?

Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc. was established for the charitable purpose of:

• Rescuing, raising, and training the highest caliber medical service/assistance dogs.

• Pairing highly trained dogs with individuals afflicted by disabilities, including a focus on veterans with combat wounds.

• Building/restoring independence and improving quality of life, for both the recipient and the dog, while minimizing reliance on government, communities, caregivers, and families.

• Advancing successful service dog training practices by promoting appropriate trainer education and contributing to related research studies.

• Pursuing increased public awareness and education regarding current disability laws and contributing to new/enhanced laws regarding service dogs.

The Guardian Angels philosophy is built around being positive. We use positive reinforcement training techniques exclusively while training our dogs. We positively commit ourselves to our recipients, and train each dog to the exacting needs of each recipient. If we match a dog with a recipient, and for whatever reason the match isn’t right – we will fix it. Our only goal is to ensure that our recipients are thriving with their service dogs.

Foster Family

One of the most important roles at Guardian Angels is that of our Foster Training Families. These amazing families allow Guardian Angels to train more dogs for those in need, by enlisting volunteers to foster and train these amazing dogs, and helping prepare them for their recipients. If you want to be apart of a life-saving program, and have the time to work with, train and attend weekly classes with a foster service dog in-training, this program is for you!

Quarantine Family

By becoming a Quarantine Foster Family, and welcoming one of these amazing rescue dogs into your home for approximately three weeks, you will be playing a vital role in saving the life of a dog who would otherwise have been euthanized, but will eventually go on to save the life of their recipient! What an amazing gift to give!
