Dogs for Good provides 3 services – Assistance Dog, Family Dog and Community Dogs.
Dogs for Good provides three services – Assistance Dog: training assistance dogs to support adults and children with physical disabilities and children with autism; Family Dog: providing advice and support to people on how their pet dog can benefit their whole family; Community Dog: training activity and therapy dogs and their specialist handlers to work in communities and schools.
Dogs for Good must raise £12,000 to fund each dog from birth to fully trained Assistance, Activity or Therapy Dog and £20,000 to fund the dog for its entire working life.
It costs nearly £3 million pounds a year to run Dogs for Good and the vital services it provides. The charity receives no government funding and relies entirely on donations, fundraising and volunteers to continue its pioneering work: 77p from every £1 raised or donated goes directly to support its work. With over 2000 enquiries each year there are many more people the charity could help. It’s estimated that more than 100,000 people in the UK could benefit from an Assistance Dog.
