JSDA in brief

JSDA in brief
 
The start of it all
In 1992, a woman brought her service dog home from the United States. A volunteer organization “Service Dog Association” was established to help and support her.
 
Establishment of a social welfare organization
The volunteer group changed to a social welfare organization in 2004 to stably and continuously raise and train as many service dogs as possible for those in need, and to establish a support system for our users.
 
The opening of Cynthia’s hill
Our previous office in Hachioji-city (Tokyo) had no elevators to get to the 5th floor office, so access for the physically challenged was not easy. So with the help of many, we decided to build a facility which the physically disabled can easily access. Thus “Cynthia’s Hill” opened in May 2009 as the only training and rehabilitation center in Japan specialized in service dogs.
 

Cynthia's Hill

Cynthia's Hill
 
We opened the Service Dog Training and Rehabilitation Center, Cynthia’s Hill, in May 2009.
We created a training facility with five training rooms for physically challenged individuals, a kennel for a maximum of 25 dogs, and a multipurpose hall. This is the first-ever training center in Japan designed especially for service dogs. We’ve designed it to create a homely atmosphere, so that both dogs and people can feel comfortable in the environment.
We received immense support from JKA, Aichi Pref., Nagoya City, Mie Pref., Gifu Pref., Shizuoka Pref. and other organizations in building this center.
 
Cynthia climbed a small hill, as she helped establish the Service Dog Law for the Physically Disabled. To remember her achievements, we have located our facility on top of a small hill, where we will continue to pursue Cynthia’s dreams, promote service dogs, bring happiness to physically challenged individuals and to create a society kind to both humans and animals.
 
Service dog Cynthia … helped spread awareness about service dogs to Japan, contributing to the establishment of The Act on Assistance Dogs for Physically Disabled Persons. There is a statue of Cynthia at JR Takarazuka Station, where she has become a symbol for the positive relationship between humans and animals.
