With your generosity, we can help change more lives.
Founded in 2012, Retrieving Independence is a non-profit organization that is run entirely by volunteers with a committed board of directors at the helm. We have 52 active volunteers, two certified trainers, a professional counselor and a veterinarian—all who volunteer their time and efforts—we have no paid staff at this stage.
Retrieving Independence needs your support because it provides service dogs as affordably as possible—at cost. Retrieving Independence’s long-term goal is to provide dogs for free to those who cannot pay or to significantly supplement the cost.
