Welcome to the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners (IAADP) NEW website!
Founded in 1993, IAADP is the premier disability rights advocacy organization. Our mission is to preserve and expand public access rights for persons with disabilities partnered with assistance dogs (guide, hearing, and/or service dogs).
IAADP envisions a world that provides full and complete access to assistance dog teams across a variety of disabilities without denial or hardship.
Representatives from IAADP have a strong history of connecting with community leaders at all levels of government and the private business sector to explain how assistance dogs help our members experience full and meaningful lives with greater independence and social inclusion across the globe. We aim to continue this advocacy, on the local, state and federal level, to insure our access is equitable. We will help our international members find the information needed to obtain equal access as well. Click to learn more.
