  • CRTASA – International Registry of Therapy and Service Animals
    Canadian Registry of Therapy Animal & Service Animals (CRTASA) is a centralized registry operating in Canada & US since 2010. It registers service & therapy animals and extends annual memberships to verified applicants that also receive a valid CRTASA Photo ID Card to readily confirm their rightful ownership of their official animal to a place of business. Service animals registered by CRTASA include guide dogs and other trained species (eg. helper monkeys, miniature seeing guide horses, etc..) CRTASA does not certify service animals – it only registers those already officially trained/certified to assist their owner with a disability. The standardized CRTASA Photo ID Card alleviates past confusion that variety of ID Cards (issued by different states, provinces and training facilities) posed for businesses across North America – many of whom were unfamiliar with the issuing body. CRTASA members also benefit from point of purchase discounts on animal products/services extended by participating CRTASA corporate fellows.

  • Tails for Life
    Tails for Life is dedicated to providing companion assistance dogs to service individuals in need.

    The approach that Tails for Life takes to successfully match dogs with clients consists of interviews, observations and an assessment of the clients’ needs. Tails for Life will educate the client, provide resources, and assist in the transition. Dogs are trained for a period of one to two years and there is a two to four week transition period.

    Tails for Life provides behavior modification programs for pet dog owners and rescue groups in need. These are services for those who have dogs with troublesome behaviors and need help communicating with their companion. These programs are to educate owners, help foster positive behaviors and prevent dogs from being placed in shelters. Currently the staff at Tails for Life is the owner, Jacob Guell, CPDT.
