Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland is a national charity providing highly trained assistance dogs for children with autism and their families. Our dogs are specially trained to provide safety, independence and companionship to children who would otherwise live in a very isolated world. These dogs help to transform the lives of children and their families.

It takes up to 2 years to train each dog, initially the pup is placed with a Puppy Foster Carer who are all volunteers and raises the pup for the first 12 months ensuring it is well socialised in order for it to become a suitable assistance dog. The dog then enters its training which takes a further 3 months at which time it is matched to a suitable child and family who will have already been assessed and accepted for an assistance dog. All dogs have access to shops, restaurants etc and wear a red jacket with a logo to identify them as an assistance dog. The family go through intensive training to ensure they are confident before taking the dog home and this is then followed up by aftercare visits to the home. It cost €15,000 to train each dog and all of our money is raised through fundraising events.
