Freedom Service Dogs: Charlotte’s Web’s Partnership in Transforming Lives

At Charlotte's Web, we're not just about creating premium products derived from hemp; we're also dedicated to making a positive impact on the world around us. Our commitment to bettering the planet and the people who inhabit it goes beyond the realm of wellness. It extends to partnerships that truly make a difference, and one such partnership close to our hearts is Freedom Service Dogs. 

What is Freedom Service Dogs? 

Freedom Service Dogs of America (FSD) is an organization that has been transforming lives since its founding in 1987. They specialize in custom-training assistance dogs to serve individuals facing a wide range of challenges, from veterans with PTSD to children with autism and other neurocognitive disabilities, and those with physical disabilities resulting from conditions like cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injury. 

FSD provides professional therapy dogs to serve as partners for clinicians, therapists, law enforcement, and more. They also place FSD Skilled Companion Dogs with veterans, first responders, active-duty military members and their families, and Gold Star families to provide loving companionship in the home.

FSD offers trained therapy and companionship dogs to their clients at no charge. Additionally, they provide ongoing support for the lifetime of the partnership, ensuring both the client and the dog receive continuous assistance.

The Transformation They Bring 

The impact of Freedom Service Dogs is remarkable. For individuals living with disabilities, the introduction of a custom-trained assistance dog from FSD can open the door to new possibilities. Rather than being confined by difficulties, fears, or frustrations over what they cannot do, clients and their service dogs discover all they can achieve together. 

With a service dog by their side, FSD clients regain independence, feel more comfortable in crowds, reconnect with loved ones, and face challenges with newfound confidence.  
Freedom Service Dogs is proud to be an accredited member of Assistance Dogs International (ADI). They adhere to ADI's stringent standards for assistance dog training, ensuring that their dogs are of the highest caliber.  

Partnering for a Better Future 

At Charlotte's Web, we believe in growing with partners who share our vision for a better world. Our philanthropic partnerships are focused, measured, and deeply meaningful. Our collaboration with Freedom Service Dogs is a testament to this commitment. We are proud to support an organization that transforms lives in such powerful ways.
