How can you help our working dogs save lives?
Gifts of all sizes have an impact at the Center by directly supporting training, research, capital projects, equipment, veterinary care, and many other essential needs. Our supporters include a broad range of friends, corporations, volunteers, alumni, and others committed to our mission.
Puppy sponsorships are available for individuals, foundations, and corporations, and offer a special opportunity to directly support the training of a puppy for a period of one year. Sponsor benefits include having your name and/or company logo featured on the Center’s website and your puppy’s working vest, inclusion in promotional materials, and recognition on social media.

Different breeds, different personalities, but all have the same goal – to join the ranks of the elite working dogs who serve our country. Please visit our website for the list of working dogs available for purchase. The purchase price offsets only a fraction of the total training and care costs of our dogs, and is reinvested in the program.
