Autism Assistance Dogs

Some of the organisations in Australia who train and place Public Access Certified and/or Companion Dogs. Most of the organisations that supply Public Access Certified Dogs ask families to fundraise $15,000 towards the cost of raising and training a dog, and the waiting times are 2-3 years. Some of the organisations listed here will only place dogs locally, but most work within a wide geographic area – some even Australia-wide.

Smart Pups (Sunshine Coast, Qld) – Public Access Certified Dogs.
