As of November 22, 2010, $4667.00 has been raised for Bradyn’s service dog from 4 Paws for Ability. You all are so generous!! Money will continue to be raised through the remainder of 2010. The goal is to have thirteen thousand dollars raised for 4 Paws for Ability in Bradyn’s name.
Some of you have asked (and I wondered too) how does our financial support help a puppy who will be a service dog? I wrote to 4 Paws for Ability, and the executive director, Karen Shirk, immediately returned my e-mail with very detailed information and a big “THANK YOU” from 4 Paws for Ability for all of us for helping their group and supporting Bradyn.
Thank YOU Karen!
We think you and your group are wonderful!
Here is the breakdown of what goes into supporting the care of a service dog in training…
Professional Training – Each dog has at least 500 hours of training and socialization!
Veterinary care – I know, I know, it can be expensive! But SO worth it! (C’mon, say it!)
* Dog care * Dog supplies * Equipment * Training supplies * Treats * Toys * Operational expenses *
All of the other “miscellaneous” things our “everyday” pet dogs also need
