It's a double, no, it's a triple whammy! Merlin’s KIDS provides personal service, assistance, and companion animals free of charge to those in need.

Each dog is trained with and matched to the specific needs of the individual regardless of the nature, extent, and type(s) of disability. The family environment is also a primary consideration when placing a dog.

Merlin’s KIDS provides service animals to children with ASD diagnoses and other special needs including spinal cord injuries and paralysis. Service animals are also provided to veterans of the United States military, both active duty and honorably discharged in order to assist them in their daily activities.

Merlin’s KIDS rescues dogs and horses from shelters and rescue organizations nationwide and rehabilitates and then trains them to meet the specific needs of an individual. Dogs that have passed the rigorous tests including temperament and health screenings are then trained and paired with an appropriate family or group FREE OF CHARGE. We do not need to “BREED” more dogs in order to provide service dogs; The Cookie Cutter Service Dog, does not apply to autistic children. Each child is different, therefore, each dog must be different.

Yes, Merlin’s KIDS also rescues dogs to become companion animals for seniors with or without special needs. Some dogs are also adopted by special group homes.
