Amazed. Inspired. Grateful. You, our donors, inspire us to change lives. Your generous support gave Anderson his service dog Gilead who helps him walk without canes. Keith, an Army Veteran, leaves his house because of Asher by his side. You brought smiles to the faces of people in the hospital and gave a mother the gift of hearing her child read out loud for the first time. Thank you for your continued support and belief in the people we serve and the mission we do.
The Need. The number of adults with any type of physical functioning difficulty is 37.4 million; 16.2% of the population. According to the American Humane Association, there are roughly 20,000 service dogs in the U.S., half of which are guide dogs for the blind. There exists an enormous gap between those needing to be served, and those we are able to serve. Just over 50,000 service members have sustained physical injury and over 100,000 are diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) further increasing the needs for skilled service dogs to serve our population.
The Wait. People are waiting up to 5 years for the gift of independence. The gift only a quality trained service dog can provide with your help.
Give.
