Sponsor a Puppy To Help Change a Life With Southeastern Guide Dogs

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY OCT 2, 2019

The new fundraising initiative, 'Sponsor a Puppy' program, launched to support the partnerships forged between working dogs and the people who need them. A donor can choose to sponsor a puppy (or multiple puppies) for themselves or as a gift, for as little as $19 per dog, per month. After selecting “their” puppy, sponsors follow the two-year path from puppy preschool and kindergarten, to life with a volunteer puppy raiser, classes with a certified trainer in Canine University, and finally, the graduation to certified guide dog. Regular Pupdates will provide engaging progress reports and photos of dogs-in-training as each one matures and learns.

Southeastern Guide Dogs receives no government funding and relies upon donations to breed, train and raise puppies into service dogs for disabled recipients at no cost. With the Sponsor a Puppy initiative, the non profit hopes to pair more dogs with handlers who suffer from vision loss, veterans with a disability, and children with challenges.
