Mobility Service Dogs- West Coast Project (MSD-WCP) trains service dogs and offers life tools while educating the mobility-disabled community, their people, and the public to improve the quality of life of the individual living with disabilities through FUNctional independence. Our vision is for the mobility-impaired community to live full, vibrant lives, achieve a level of independence with the service dog, and educate the community to understand the purpose of a service dog. In doing this, MSD-WCP seeks to create a user-friendly pathway for all people with mobility challenges to enable active participation in the world at large. We do this through our Service Dog Program, Paws that Empower our Education Program, and WAG our Business, Schools, Employer, and Government Education Program. Founded in 2018, MSD-WCP currently has 18 service dog-handler teams. Each year we aim to bring 2-3 new puppies into our community. In addition to providing service dogs to mobility disabled handlers, we provide the handlers with ongoing support through weekly meet-ups and an online support network. MSD-WCP’s network of support provides handlers with tools, training, ADA rights, speakers, art, and education during the working life of their dog to support each individual's journey towards FUNctional independence.

MSD-WCP aims to put the ability in disability. At MSD-WCP, we know that disabilities do not go away during a crisis, in fact, the pandemic has intensified barriers, roadblocks, and challenges to daily living. Now, more than ever, the disabled community needs support and programs provided by MSD-WCP. Check out our Education Opportunities,  Volunteer Opportunities, Donation and Gifting Opportunities on our website. Signage is also available for businesses, schools and public buildings.
