The Story

Hello! We are Canines 4 Hope, Certified Service Dog Trainers and we offer trained Service Dogs and Service Dog Training for children and adults with medical afflictions such as Diabetes, PTSD, Seizures and Autism. Our service dogs are trained to the specific medical needs of each person. Since medical insurance companies do not pay or reimburse for the cost of a medical service dog, many times our client's have to make the hard decision to put their medical needs on hold while they attempt to save up for the purchase of the service dog. Our goal for this fundraiser is to help our clients get on the fast track to a better quality of life and with your help, we will use the money donated to help fund a service dogs for our clients.
