Sponsor a Dog

Home / Ways to Give / Sponsor a Dog

Sponsor a dog so that Deafinitely Dogs can place more service dogs with those who need one in order to live more independently. Assistance dogs are very special—they serve a medical need that may or may not be visible to others. They perform tasks that mitigate a disability for their human partner. The work that these dogs do every single day is truly a miracle to the lives they enrich and touch. Learn how to sponsor a dog below!

What Does a Sponsorship Cover?

Accomplishing the whole 24-month training process is expensive. It wouldn’t be possible without the sponsorship and support of our donors and volunteers. Sponsorship for a Deafinitely Dogs! service dog covers the costs from the time we acquire a puppy through all of its training until it’s placed with their person.
