Many of our families are looking for ways to raise money in order to pay for their service dog.  Over the years we have compiled this list of service dog funding resources.  Some organizations or groups have grants available.  We hope you will find it helpful.  We are always adding to it, so if you see where we’ve missed a group, program, or idea, please let us know!
