Welcome to Assistance Dogs of America, Inc., located in Swanton, Ohio. ADAI helps children and adults with disabilities achieve greater independence by training and placing service and therapy dogs to assist with the individual`s daily needs. For over 20 years, ADAI assistance dogs have helped transform the lives of over 150 individuals and their communities.
