Career Change Dogs

A dog might become a career change dog if it has health or temperament issues, has retired from a working partnership or is just not suited to working for a living.  These dogs make excellent loving pets and companions.

If you are interested in adopting a Career Change Dog, please click on the link above to complete the application. You will be contacted by Client Services when we have a dog that might be a good fit for you. Our primary concern is to find the most suitable match for both the dog and the new owner.

Each dog has been screened for temperament, provided medical care, has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and put on a high quality, nutritious diet.

KSDS does not charge for our Career Change Dog adoptions, but a donation would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions about applying for a career change dog, contact Letha Nelson, Career Change Coordinator at 785-325-2256 ext 115 or
