Palmetto - Every guide and service dog begins life as a puppy. For as little as $19, you can sponsor a puppy and follow its exciting two-year journey as it grows up to assist an owner who needs it. After two years of training, a puppy may graduate as a guide dog for a veteran with a disability, or a companion dog for a child facing serious challenges. 

"If you sponsor a puppy you get to follow along on it's journey for nearly two years and along the way we send you photos just as it progresses through its training, and you really get to see first hand that puppy is going to eventually affect somebody else's life in a really impactful way," program manager Sabrina Anderson said.
