Apply for a Service Dog

Retrieving Independence works hard to select and breed dogs that will be suitable for service work. We work just as hard to qualify and match clients with a service dog.

If you are ready to apply for a Retrieving Independence Service Dog, please fill out a request for an application. Please be sure to read everything carefully and have your doctor sign off on the medical release form. This is required for an application to be reviewed.


You can also mail the completed application and fees to Retrieving Independence at:

Attn: Applications

Unsure if a service dog is right for you?

Please note, Retrieving Independence prohibits discrimination based on race, color, creed, gender, religion, marital status, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, including genetic characteristics, pregnancy, sexual orientation, military status, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state or local laws.

Please keep in mind that an application can be rejected at any time, as we always keep in mind what is in the best interest of the client. Also, the Retrieving Independence team makes a final decision on whether a prospective recipient is eligible for a service dog during the home visit.
