To advance its mission, ADAI has launched several innovative programs, including Prisoners Uniting Pups and People (PUPP Program). Inmates at the Toledo Correctional Institution gain a new skill set and learn about responsibility by raising and training dogs for ADAI. This program continues to be a successful partnership, and many graduates of the PUPP Program have been placed with people in our service area.

Studies and our own success stories show again and again that dogs can provide tremendous benefits to individuals by reducing the physical obstacles facing people with disabilities, as well as social barriers.

At ADAI, volunteers and sponsors allow us to provide these essential services to those with disabilities and special needs. With their support, we will continue to train and provide service and therapy dogs to enhance the lives of more and more individuals.
