Project Chance Requirements for Assistance Dog in Service

Project Chance requires the following:

  1. An IEP (individualized Educational Plan) or a similar instrument that outlines the current educational/social/ cognitive progress from a clinical or educational institution.
  2. A physician’s prescription for the service dog.
  3. A family consisting of two adults (this may include single parent homes with a caregiver, i.e. nanny, etc.).
  4. A signed Project Chance waiver that will give permission for the publication of photos and stories about your child and his/her dog.
  5. A commitment to meet regularly with trainers, puppy raisers and other child/dog teams for social, behavioral, and recreational activities.
  6. Families to be residents of Northeast Florida or Southeast Georgia. Project Chance retains the flexibility to place dogs outside this area depending on the family’s individual support services.
  7. After the application (including a $100 non-refundable application fee) is received from the family, the family will enter into a probationary period which will end when the dog is transferred to the family. This transfer will vary depending on the dog’s maturity, family’s ability to handle and achieve all objectives met, and evaluation and recommendations from the trainers.
