From July 15 to November 1, Retrieving Independence is asking for your help to double the number of service dogs placed with deserving people in our communities – your donation can change a life forever.
Currently the cost of breeding, training and placing each RI service dog is $25,000. This is lower than industry standard due to our large volunteer base, training program, and low overhead costs.
Through the generosity of private donors, we are able to lower the recipient contribution to $15,000. Many of our past recipients have raised this amount on their own but for many, cost is a barrier. A successful Double Dog Drive will allow us to lower the recipient contribution to $9500, making their fundraising goal more attainable.
Please consider donating today to help us reach our goal of $100,000!
