Career Change Dogs

* We are not currently accepting Career Change applications. Please check back later this year to apply.*


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

If you are interested in adopting a Career Change Dog, please complete the online application. If we have a dog that might be a good fit for you, our Client Services representative will be in contact with 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 ask for a suggested donation for our Career Change Dog adoptions.

NOTE: We are ONLY accepting applications from residents in Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma and Colorado for this program due to our location.

If you have any questions about applying for a career change dog, contact Sandy Nutsch, Client Services at 785-325-2256 ext 100 or
