Spring Field Trip to Storyland
Here's What's New
We are proud to announce that A.C.T.S. is now an ADI accredited service dog training organization.
ADI’s mission is to establish and promote standards of excellence in all areas of assistance dog acquisition, training, and partnership, and to facilitate communication and learning among member organizations.
Accreditation by ADI is a peer-review process. It is a uniform method by which ADI voting member agencies can achieve compliance with the operational standards of excellence established by ADI for organizations that train and place assistance dogs. Standards of compliance include every aspect of the program from general management of volunteers, training and placement of dogs, application and follow up procedures, general animal care and record keeping, and overall business practices, to emergency procedures, risk management, and general documentation.
Partnering organizations undergo an official document review and on-site assessment conducted by highly skilled assessors. During the course of the on-site visit, assessors interview staff, volunteers, the Board of Directors, applicants, and graduates. Assessors are also given access to a wide variety of agency documents and records, and they observe graduates and puppies in training during practice sessions.
At the end of February A.C.T.S. received word that their pre-assessment paperwork was approved. In the end of August A.C.T.S. completed their on-site assessment with Grete Eide, an ADI Evaluator and Chief Canine Care Officer for Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind and America’s VetDogs in Smithtown NY. In mid-October we received word that the committee unanimously approved our application.
We are extremely proud to be a part of such an amazing organization!
Captain has been placed as a Facility Therapy Dog in an Ohio Elementary School. He completed his team training in July and is anxiously awaiting the school year! He will be joining Brooke as the second Facility Dog in the Toledo school district.
