Little Angels Service Dogs
Changing Lives… One Dog at a Time
Little Angels Service Dogs is 501c3 nonprofit organization of trainers and volunteers who work to provide highly trained dogs to assist disabled children and adults. We have facilities in California and New Hampshire, but place dogs throughout the United States.
Our dogs are trained to assist in a variety of ways to help with daily tasks and to increase independence.
Most of the dogs we place are puppies that have come from our own breeding program. They are raised and molded from birth with one specific goal of being an Assistance Dog. Our other dogs are lucky enough to be rescued from shelters and end up getting to change the lives of others. Each dog’s training is personalized in tasks to help their individual handler.
We train the following types of assistance dogs. More information on each can be found by clicking on the title below.
