We’re thrilled to welcome Nick Suzuki as part of the Asista family. Through his professional experience, he has been able to witness the various challenges of people affected by a mental health condition. The young hockey player and animal lover is confident that his participation will raise awareness, promote the cause to the public and have a meaningful impact in the community.

The “A Hero Within All of Us” campaign highlights the influence and power we all have in positively changing lives through actions and support.

support the campaign


We're always looking for motivated and talented volunteers. Our volunteers work both from a distance and in our facilities. Tasks include assisting with dog walking, administration and basic animal care. Moreover, volunteers can also help with fundraising, advocacy, education, administrative support, special events, volunteer coordination, fostering and so much more.


An average service dog costs approximately $35,000 depending on the training the service dog will undergo. No donation is too little. A 20$ donation will help provide a service dog with a proper collar and leash. A 50$ donation will help provide a comfortable bed. A 800$ donation will help us procure a potential service dog for our program.


Fostering an animal means you take a service dog in training into your home and care for them for us. While they’re in your home, we provide you with food and medical care until the pet is available for the training module. Foster families help our service dogs with socialization and love. All our dogs are large breeds ranging from the classic labrador to golden retriever to Bernese mountain dogs.
