Make a Dream Come True

Every day, families around the country are raising money so their children with disabilities can receive service dogs to improve their lives. You can read some of the stories here of the children and their families working to reach their goals. Please help make a dream come true!

It costs 4 Paws between $40,000-$60,000 to raise, train, and place a service dog. Each family has to raise $17,000 of that to pay for a service dog. Your contributions to their fee for service and donations to 4 Paws for Ability help us cover the cost of each dog.
