Since 2006, The Dog Alliance has been improving the lives of families and individuals through therapeutic programs which incorporate the powerful connection between dogs and humans.

Every year, nearly 200 Alliance therapy dog teams visit over 300 partner sites, including hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, family courts, schools and libraries, serving more than 50,000 people with therapy-dog services. The organization also trains service dogs for qualified veterans and first responders and provides vocational training, coaching and placement in dog-related careers for adults with disabilities. Last year, it added a 3,200 square-foot Kennel and Education Center to expand its service dog and job skills training programs.

This year, with dog-centric therapeutic services being provided across Central Texas and beyond and with human clients from throughout the nation applying to adopt their trained service dogs – the Austin Dog Alliance become simply “The Dog Alliance.”
