Thanks to The Allegheny County District Attorney’s office, the Autism Center of Pittsburgh is once again accepting applications for a Service dog! Service dogs are very special animals that enjoy roles as both a companion and helper. They serve their partners and are loyal and affectionate. A service dog will help your child live more independently in your home and in public.
We give dogs away twice a year, Spring and Fall. We are currently taking applications at this time, all applications are kept on file. Please download the application below and mail it to us.
You must be a resident of Allegheny County to be awarded the dog.
