The program is based on teamwork. Both you and your dog will be working hard toward a common goal: certification as a service dog team. The Operation Freedom Paws Canada team is here to support your success.
OFPC may look to some like a charity, but we think of it as an organization that supports and enables you to achieve success. We’re not just giving you a dog, we’re giving you the tools you need to overcome challenges.
Most of the dogs in our teams are rescued from shelters. Thus, the team is healing together, & providing each other with a new lease on life. All the elements you’ll need to be successful will be provided at no cost to you.
How To Help
Donate or Shop To Support Our Cause
To ensure the program is available to everyone who needs it, this program is provided free of charge to each recipient. We rely on donations to provide support for shelter rescues dog fees, training equipment, veterinary treatments, Dog Food and Team Training.
Working with Veterans, First Responders and Non-veterans has been the greatest experience of my life. Watching a team bond and save each others lives is phenomenal and an incredible life changing experience.

A hundred years of thank yous still wouldn’t feel like enough to explain how grateful I am to OFPC and its supporters. I have seen first-hand the amount of people that have had their lives absolutely changed and filled with hope again. Thank you for reminding me there is life after trauma and how to trust my dog.
