We depend on the generosity of donors to help fund our mission.
Every day, individuals with disabilities wake up to a world full of challenges. Even simple tasks, such as getting out of bed or opening a door can be difficult. With the services of in-home caregivers prohibitively expensive for many individuals with disabilities, getting the assistance needed to navigate daily challenges can seem like an impossible dream.
Thankfully, there is a source of help — K9s 4 Mobility. We’re a Cheyenne, Wyoming-based non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of those with disabilities through the training, placement and support of Assistance Dog partnerships.
K9s 4 Mobility trains Guide Dogs that assist a person who is blind or visually impaired, Service Dogs that perform skill tasks for a person with a physical disability and Social Service Dogs that work with a professional in the field of occupational therapy, physical therapy, education and other specialties.
