Illini Service Dogs
Mobilizing the world, four paws at a timeTM
From providing mobility service dogs at absolutely no cost to educating the public on disability culture and rights, we are passionate students and professionals who volunteer their time and skills to accomplish one mission of mobilizing the world. Our mission ends when the financial barriers to obtaining and owning a high quality service dog are eliminated and the public’s knowledge of the disability community and its rights are second nature. Until then, you’ll find us tirelessly working to implement this vision.
We believe that by providing even more independence to those with a physical disability in conjunction with being a catalyst for spreading awareness in support of the disability community, we are making the world a better place, four paws at a time.
We provide University of Illinois students with the unprecedented opportunity to train service dogs and engage with the disability community. Student members work 1-on-1 with our service-dogs-in-training and experienced training staff to provide the optimal skill set that the receiving individual needs. During this process, we envision that each student will gain a unique perspective of disability culture and rights while taking part in a positive social experience.
