Assistance Dogs International (ADI) is a coalition of not for profit assistance dog organisations.

Assistance dog organisations that pass ADI’s comprehensive accreditation become ADI member programs, and are regularly assessed to ensure they meet the high standards expected.

The purpose of ADI is to:

  • improve the training, placement, and utilization of assistance dogs by our member organisations
  • educate the public about assistance dogs,
  • advocate for the legal rights of people with disabilities partnered with assistance dogs.
