We are courageously creating life-saving partnerships that inspire, transform, and empower diabetics in our community.
Leading the Way
As the first and a leader in developing Medical-Alert Service Dogs, Dogs4Diabetics (D4D) maintains ethical and industry-leading standards for our innovative scent-trained dogs, who can detect changes in blood sugar 20-30 minutes before the newest technology. To truly serve our community, D4D trains dogs, unites them with clients, and supports these teams for life, at no cost.
Living Beyond Diabetes
While we join the diabetic community in hoping for a cure, D4D’s mission is to support diabetics and their families by empowering them to thrive today.
