Many people are unaware of the cost behind training a service dog. Since we are a non-profit organization, our clients participate in fundraising efforts to reach our goals. Our clients have a fundraising target of $15,000 to $20,000. By using our clients as volunteer fundraisers we are able to operate on a much larger budget, which means we can place far more dogs and do not have to utilize a waiting list. The funding you are raising is used to support the ASDA mission of placing service dogs with disabled people. Once your fundraising requirement is complete you will then qualify to receive one of our specially trained dogs. It will cost ASDA $30,000+ to place a service dog with a disabled person so any amount of money you raise that exceeds your minimum required amount will certainly make it possible for us to train even more dogs for more disabled people.
If you are interested in sponsoring one of our service dogs, please call 314-607-2361 or e-mail: Info@AmericanServiceDog.com.
