Blue Path Service Dogs

BluePath’s expertly trained autism service dogs unlock life’s potential.

Mission:

BluePath provides autism service dogs, offering safety, companionship and opportunities for independence. 

Vision:

Our vision is to be the definitive leader in autism service dog provision – transforming the lives of individuals, families and communities.

“Many times we were forced to take turns staying home or just not go out with our son because the stress of going out in public was so great. He got away from us more than once and the agony of getting to him before something tragic happened to him was more than we could bear. Receiving our autism service dog changed our lives; we have been able to participate in many activities that in the past would not have been possible.” 

 

BluePath Service Dogs, Inc is a non-profit, charitable organization under the provisions of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (tax ID # 81-3606565). Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law
