Formed in 1996, the Saint Francis Service Dogs places professionally trained service dogs to assist people with disabilities.

According to the organization’s website, the service dogs assist people with disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, joint and/or muscular diseases, multiple sclerosis, brain injury, paralysis, and rheumatoid arthritis, among other conditions.

It is now the largest service dog organization in the state and is also accredited by Assistance Dogs International.

“It takes two years and tens of thousands of dollars to raise, train, and place one service dog,” St. Francis Service Dogs said on its website. “We absorb this cost and do not charge our partners for their service dogs.”
