Are you ready to apply for a service dog?
The demand for autism service dogs is high and availability is limited. ASDA must qualify applicants; the process is demanding, but the rewards are great.
Children need to be at least five years old to receive a dog, but since the qualifying process is lengthy, families can start applying when their child is as young as four.
Please download the application here:
Include a $30 application fee and mail the application, including diagnosis, statements, DVD, and signed agreement to:
5232 N Interstate Ave.
Portland, OR 97217
After we receive your application, you will receive confirmation within seven to ten business days. It takes four to six weeks for ASDA to review and evaluate your application, videos, and check references. If accepted into our program, your family will be contacted for a phone interview.
If you have questions about the application process, or would like to let us know that you are considering applying for a service dog, please contact us.
