Independence Service Dogs Foundation (ISDF) is an organization dedicated to providing service, therapy, and comfort canines to individuals who are struggling to maintain independence due to circumstances beyond their control. All our service dogs are fully funded through donations. ISDF was launched in August 2018 as a 501(c)3 organization, a fiscally sponsored project of Charitable Ventures of Orange County. Our extensive professional and volunteer experience in selecting, training, and handling service and therapy dogs well qualifies us to partner with local schools, hospitals, domestic violence shelters, and veterans programs to supply highly trained service, therapy, and comfort dogs to enhance existing support services provided.
Our CORE VALUES & Inspiration
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”
