The Gift of Sunshine supports service dogs and their partners with financial assistance to offset some costs of obtaining and caring for a service dog.
Service dogs are trained to assist people with a wide range of physical and emotional conditions. Although some organizations provide service dogs at no charge, there are many more that do charge a fee. We realize that the initial fee for a service dog, which can be thousands of dollars, may present a hardship for many people. The Hope Chest can help with these costs.
The Gandalf Fund provides financial assistance for working and retired assistance dogs in the event of catastrophic illness or accidental injury.
We also offer Training and Certification Programs for those interested in Animal Assisted Therapy or Pet Visitation, as well as ID and Certification for owner-trained service dog partnerships.
Please join us in our mission to bring The Gift of Sunshine to service dogs and their partners.
