Contribute directly to our mission of saving dogs and helping people with disabilities
Each service dog that we place with a person with a disability costs $25,000.
Each time we pick up a new dog, there are many expenses that we always have to cover: travel, medical check-ups, x-rays, medication, food, and toys, which quickly add up in the first weeks at our facility. Initial expenses per dog average $1265.
Only a third of the dogs going through our program will be placed as service dogs. Not every dog can be a service dog. They must have the right temperament and health to be able to assist a person with a disability. When dogs don’t make it through our program, we find them good homes.
The overall cost to train, place and follow a service dog career adds up to $25,000. We ask our clients to contribute about 60% of that amount and rely on the generosity of our donors and sponsors to help us with keeping our costs to our clients down.
