  • Mood: Frustrated
My friend and I were asking the Psychological Assistance Dog organisation (Service Dogs Europe) about their accreditation, as it had occurred to us that they hadn't mentioned if they were accredited by the ADI (the international quality control for all assistance dogs). Without accreditation, an assistance dog (regardless of training) doesn't have any rights to public access. When we asked about it, Service Dogs Europe said that all their dogs have public access rights and that they were "recognised by an official body". As the only official body they can be accredited by is the ADI, we emailed the ADI directed and they said that they had never spoken to Service Dogs Europe before. This means that the dogs from this organisation do NOT have legal public access rights, and are basically just well-trained pets :/

SO long story short Service Dogs Europe has been shady and has falsely advertised their dogs as legal assistance dogs. Luckily we hadn't signed any contracts and everyone who has helped with raising money for this cause will be given their money back.

It's extremely sad that this has happened, as they'd sent us a picture of the dog they were going to give us. Now we can only rely on whatever charities we can find, most likely one abroad (hopefully in Europe), at least in this case the dog should be free of charge.

The moral of this story is always look into the organisations you work with IT'S A PRETTY SHITTY SITUATION TO BE IN TBH :c

Thank you to all that helped regardless <3
