      Why HELP?

This is my prayer, that our love may abound more and more in knowledge

and depth of insight so that we may discern what is best....

service dogs can make a differenceStories.html
 
 

We rely on the generosity of those who - like us, have a heart for dogs and recognize and are touched by the sheer beauty of a working dog and how they can enhance the life of their partner.  The benefits of a service dog are not limited to what they physically can do.  Their loving influence is felt in many subtle (to the outsider) yet powerful ways.  People with disabilities many times feel different and hence isolated and alone.  Dogs are not only non-judgmental, they are fun and loving and bring joy into their partner’s life through their love and antics. By their presence and constant loyalty, they give their partner confidence to go out in public - many times acting as a social bridge for those who are experiencing difficulty in this area.  Let’s face it - some people are prone to bullying and making fun of those who are different. Having a beautiful dog by one’s side opens up communication and takes the focus off of a disability. In the case of a child who is having behavioral issues in public, their service dog is a gentle reminder to others that this little one has some struggles and the whole family needs to be treated with kindness - not judgment.


So then - how can you help?    In many ways:


  1. Bullet DONATE:  Every donation - no matter the size, is appreciated and put to good use.  Because we are a volunteer-run non-profit corporation, all donations go to cover the expense of providing quality service dogs to those in need. 


Here are some examples:

$12       covers the cost of one leash - each dog will need two

$12       covers the cost of one collar - each dog will need three

$60       covers the cost of one service vest - each dog will use three

$35       covers the cost of food for one month per dog

$400     covers the cost of basic veterinarian care for one year per dog

$420     covers the cost of food for one year per dog

$550     covers the cost of grooming/training supplies for one year per dog

$650     covers the cost of one bracing harness for mobility assistance - need three for this litter


Types of Donations:


GENERAL FUND:          Any amount


SPONSOR A DOG        $25,000  (You get to name the puppy and meet the recipient if you would like)


A lovely option is to do any of these  IN MEMORY OF    or    IN HONOR OF    a loved one.  If you would like
