|I've been looking into applying to a service dog program for awhile now, and I'm wondering, how many programs do you apply to? Do you apply to one and see if it works out and you get accepted, or apply to a couple in case one doesn't work out and you can go for the other one?
I'm thinking of applying to Paws with a Cause and/or NLMAD(New Life Mobility Assistance Dogs.) although I'm not sure about the second, but a 2nd, smaller program for sure. Paws with a Cause is well known and respected, but has a bigger waitlist so I'm thinking I have less of a chance of getting accepted and then being on a super extensive waitlist, whereas at NLMAD they are smaller and I probably would have a chance of getting a dog a lot sooner. Also NLMAD is near where I go to school, even if they are not as big of an organization as Paws with a Cause, a program like that might be a better choice?
Should I fill out applications to both and see what happens, or try to make the decision now?
