Warrior Support Dog Application

Are you interested in one of our dogs who will not be graduated as a service dog? If so please follow the link to learn more and see if you are eligible to apply. (Warrior Support Dogs do not have the same public access as a Service Dog. Warrior Support Dogs are only allowed to go where any normal dog can go.)

New Life K9s is committed to eliminating discrimination on the basis of gender, age, disability, race, religion, sexuality or social class. We aim to provide service dogs, delivered in a way that respects the needs of each individual and does not exclude anyone. By demonstrating these beliefs New Life K9s ensures that it develops a service dog program that is diverse, and non discriminatory.
