Sweet Charity

Supporting Children And Youth In Need!

Sweet Charity Medical Assistance Dogs, a Canadian Registered Charity (#82238 5035 RR0001) in Barrie Ontario, exists to train dogs to help children who need them. It’s that simple!

Diabetes Alert Dog Program

Our Diabetes Alert Dog program trains puppies as service dogs to match them with children and youth living with Type 1 diabetes with no hypoglycemic awareness. The dogs are professionally trained to recognize low blood sugars and alert the child or get help.

Personal Support Service DOG Program

Our Personal Support Service Dog Program trains dogs in order to help mitigate the impact of anxiety and stress related to chronic disease in children and youth. The dog acts as an emotional and therapeutic support system for the child or youth
