Service Dog Sponsorship Opportunities

We would love to count on you to be a sponsor. There are so many ways you can make a difference at 4 Paws for Ability.

*Sponsorship donations made to 4 Paws for Ability, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, are tax deductible. Please consult your local tax authority for more information on charitable tax deductions.*

Sponsor a service dog in training – $3,000:

Did you know it costs $40,000 to raise, train, and place a service dog in training (SDIT)? Sponsorships cover regular, recurring costs like monthly heartworm medication and food as well as other expenses like vests in many sizes as they grow, veterinary care, and training expenses. Each dog needs 8-10 sponsors like you on their journey to help with the resources they need to grow from puppy to placement. Sponsors receive monthly updates and pictures of the dog and an invitation to graduation to meet child/veteran who receives the dog. Interested in spreading out your SDiT sponsorship? Become a monthly donor instead as an inVESTor!

Sponsor a service dog class- $5,000:

4 Paws holds monthly service dog placement classes for our ten new service dog teams. Sponsors help cover the cost of the training equipment for all ten families in class for their new service dog, monthly preventatives, and certification cards. Sponsors will receive dog and child match announcements., an invitation to the 4 Paws graduation, and a framed photo of the graduating class. 

Sponsor a litter – $10,000:

4 Paws breeds and raises around fifty litters of future service dogs each year. Litter sponsors help by providing all vaccines to a new litter, feeding the new litter, equipping a new litter with gear, and covering the costs associated with new litter care at the Ability Center. The sponsorship includes naming the litter and the names for the individual puppies, an invitation to 4 Paws to meet the puppies when they are just four weeks old during their Facebook livestream, a visit from your puppies to your location when they are eight weeks old, monthly digital updates, and an invitation to their service dog graduations to meet the family the service dog will be helping.
