Approval does not guarantee a dog


When declining an application for a service dog, the decision will be promptly communicated to the applicant without explanation or reason, unless the Board of Directors of Program in their discretion determines that some explanation is appropriate.

A letter or prescription from your doctor stating your diagnosis is required.  a doctor form is in application package and must be sent directly from the doctor's office.


  We will notify you if you are approved.

 Approval does not guarantee a dog

As dogs become available they are carefully matched with approved clients.




 VIP does not use a first come, first served wait list model. We strive to match candidates with the best dog for their unique situation and needs. Some candidates may receive a dog in as little as 2 months while others may wait as much as two to three years. 





Clients are NOT able to request a breed specific dog or gender, but rather the board  of V.I.P. will evaluate each individual dog with our clients needs and place them accordingly. Should a client have allergy releated issues a doctor's prescription may be requested. The V.I.P board will than proceed with proper placement



Please keep in mind that the application can be denied at any point during the application process. VIP prohibits discrimination based on race, color, creed, gender, religion, marital status, age, national origin or ancestry,  sexual orientation, military service status, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state or local laws.
