Help a Family

Your gift helps provide a family with much more than a service dog; your help provides a bridge for a child and their family to live a better life.

How much does it cost to change a life?


Good Dog! invests an average of $32,000 to raise, care and train each dog as well as educate and support each family. Currently, we add 8-10 new teams to the Good Dog! Family each year in addition to supporting our active Good Dog! Teams. That means we must raise up to $320,000 annually. To help us offset these costs, our families agree to raise a minimum of $16,000 each. Many families choose to fundraise this amount with the help of our resources and fundraising coach. Good Dog! provides families in need with scholarships to cover the remaining costs of their service dog program.

Your tax-deductible gift to the Good Dog! Family Scholarship Fund helps sustain our programs and makes a direct impact on a family by providing a better quality of life for their child with a disability.
