The mission of KSDS Assistance Dogs, Inc. is to provide professionally trained guide, service and facility dogs for people in need of a canine partner to enhance their independence, to fully function in society and or to enrich their professional career responsibilities with the ongoing support of our trainers to ensure proficient working partnerships.
KSDS was incorporated as Kansas Specialty Dog Service in January 1990 by a committee of Kansas 4-H families to fill the void of accessibility to service and guide dogs in the Midwest. With a one-time $500,000 in start-up funding from the State of Kansas and additional support from donors, KSDS now includes a state-of-the art kennel, modern year-round training facility, an administrative building, an accessible housing duplex and sixplex, agility center, and a newly renovated training building.
Annette states, “ Returning to KSDS has always been my goal. I am excited and blessed to be back working and reconnecting with Graduates and Puppy Raisers. I enjoy the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of people with disabilities through highly trained canines.”
