What is Sweet Charity?

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

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.

Canine Ambassador Program

In our Canine Ambassador Program (CAP), a team of a staff member and their pet dog is trained to promote well-being and positive mental health in the safety of a particular facility. Apply now for the 2019 sessions.

Personal Support Service Dog Program

Our Personal Support Service Dog Program trains rescue dogs as personal support service dogs 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.

Thank you to all of our generous supporters.
