At DBL, we’ve always been committed to providing Assistance Dogs to those who need them most, regardless of income level or ability to pay. Historically, we’ve required a one-time $50 application fee and a $500 deposit, returned after one year of successful placement. This is in stark contrast to many programs that charge $17,000 to $30,000 for Assistance Dogs or require their clients to fundraise for the cost of the dog. We’re excited to announce that as of April 2019, we have eliminated the application fee and deposit. That’s right! All DBL Assistance Dogs are now placed at
zero cost to clients
. This was made possible only through the support of our individual, corporate, and foundation sponsors.
