What Are Vouchers?
Insufficient funds limit the accessibility to assistance dogs. Individuals unable to contribute toward the cost of their dog feel, and in fact are, less empowered.
Recognizing this, ADUC provides vouchers to individuals with disabilities, thus enabling them to proudly approach an ADUC member program seeking a canine helpmate with the necessary funds to make this miracle possible.
Vouchers are valid for one year, so the assistance dog must be obtained within that time period. One-year extensions are allowed in special circumstances but must be requested one month prior to the voucher's expiration date.
Vouchers for service, hearing and guide dogs provided by a member program are available in amounts up to $5,500. Vouchers for social/therapy dogs provided by a member program in amounts up to $2,500. If the client provides their own dog to be trained by a member program, the voucher amount will be decreased.
Vouchers are disbursed to programs in two payments: fifty percent (50%) upon completion of client training and the remaining fifty percent (50%) after one year, pending verification of a successful working team.
