Every donation allows us to fulfill our mission: to provide service dogs for people with mental health disabilities. Your donations of money and in-kind gifts of supplies and equipment are essential to our work in the community.
Did you know that we receive no government funding? Everything we do depends on the generosity of people like you.
Becoming a foster family
The principal role of a foster family is to teach an Asista dog the basics. Maintaining good health, developing basic good behaviour and socialisation are the key elements required for our dogs chosen for the our programs for people with mental health conditions.
Becoming a volutneer
The Asista Foundation depends on reliable and committed volunteers to help ensure the best possible care for our service dogs, service dogs in training and families, as well as to assist our dedicated staff. Volunteers must meet the requirements and expectations outlined below in order to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients and their families.
