One Student + One Dog = Three Beautiful Futures

               

Giving Tuesday – Give Now!

Give the gift of love, independence, self-worth and empowerment when you give to support Bingo, and program dogs like him, this Giving Tuesday.

Dogs like Bingo help teach important life and work skills to disadvantaged teens who train them before they go on to serve others when placed as therapy dogs. While in training our dogs touch the lives of many others in our Furry Tales Reading Program and community visits.

Did you know it costs approximately $5,000 to cover the costs of training a dog in the Kids & Canine program? Help us meet our goal of $10,000 on #GiveTuesday, which will pay for Bingo and one of his friends to go through our training program.

Kids and Canines works with at-risk teens, teaching them how to train assistance dogs. The bond between student and dog help these at-risk youths succeed . . . and then the dogs go on to have productive working lives, providing independence to individuals with disabilities.

  • Kids and Canines provides trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities and children with autism throughout central Florida. The dogs also change the lives of at-risk middle school students, who learn to care for, groom, and train the dogs during the school day.
  • As part of the Hillsborough County School District, we are able to uniquely connect with teachers and school administration, resulting in truly remarkable transformations in our student trainers.
  • After training, our dogs go on to assist individuals with disabilities in performing daily tasks, help children with autism lead fuller, more independent lives and ease stress on parents and family members.  Our dogs also work with professionals in schools, health care facilities and crisis counseling centers.

That’s how, at our school, 1 + 1 = 3. (But don’t tell the math teachers.)
