  How can you help?

Since we receive no outside funding and do not charge our clients, we rely heavily on donations and volunteers. Monetary donations are always welcome!  Check out our donate page or click on the donate button on our header! Some ways you  can volunteer are listed below.  

Follow these instructions to begin volunteering:

To ensure we keep all dogs and humans safe, all volunteers are asked to agree to a background check.  It costs $25 and is paid for by the volunteer.  Please download the background application, (PDF file below) fill it out, and mail it with a $25 check to Service Dog University PO Box 37157 Pensacola, FL 32526.  If you prefer,  you may scan it and email it to and use one of our website pay methods to pay the fee.  When the results from the background check come back, our volunteer coordinator will contact you.


If you have questions or need help:
