Program 1

( 1 ) Our award winning newsletter disseminates news and legislative information of interest to the assistance dog partners around the world,the programs that train these special dogs and others with a personal or professional interest in the assistance dog field. ( 2 ) Our Information & Advocacy Center helps disabled persons faced with the anguish of access denial; we also answer queries from families with disabled children, disabled adults, trainers, businesses, government officials, health care professionals and members of the public via phone, fax, and email. ( 3 ) IAADP provides grants of financial aid to "save a partnership," on a case by case basis through an emergency veterinary fund. It is meant to help in cases when an assistance dog has a major veterinary problem and the only impediment to continuing a working career is that the the disabled person is unable to afford the recommended treatment.
