Donate and Change a Life

With your generosity, we can help change more lives.

Founded in 2012, Retrieving Independence is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit that has placed more than 35 dogs to date entirely at their cost to breed, raise, feed, train and place. The Retrieving Independence team is a majority volunteer-led effort that includes a professional counselor, a certified trainer, a veterinarian, and more than 50 furlough volunteers.

Retrieving Independence needs your support because it provides service dogs as affordable 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.

Join our efforts. Join our team.

When you make a one-time or recurring donation, you become a part of the Retrieving Independence family and your support positively impacts everyone involved, as well as helps us sustain a brighter future.

Together, we can propel the Retrieving Independence Mission and Vision forward.

Your support—small or large, recurring or one-time donation—all helps greatly.
