Released Dog Application

We appreciate your interest in Service Dogs of Virginia’s (SDV) Released Dog program. The following application will allow us to better understand your home situation. Please answer all questions thoroughly, and contact us with any questions.

We will only place a released SDV dog in the state of Virginia. SDV does not release dogs very often, but we will contact you if we have a dog and your application indicates you to be a possible match. SDV does request a $1000 placement fee for each released dog. Dogs are released because they are not suitable for service dog work. We fully disclose the reason each dog is released.

We endeavor to visit all homes so your chances of receiving one of our dogs is greater if you live in a 30 minute radius of Charlottesville.
