About Us

We provide highly trained dogs to those with disabilities.  Having an assistance dog can change a person’s life!  These dogs provide their person greater independence, unconditional love and companionship. Just imagine being out in public and no one truly making eye contact with you, perhaps even avoiding you.  Now change that scenario to going out with a service dog! Some are drawn to a friendly face…yes both the face of the person with the disability and their wonderful service dog!   These amazing dogs can open doors to smiles and conversations.


Deafinitely Dogs! is a nonprofit 501(c)(3).  Assistance Dogs are provided to approved applicants at no charge.  We rely on donations to meet the costs of placing and training our dogs.  Each approved applicant is expected to participate in fund raising.    

A little bit about just some of our       amazing dogs!
