Fee for Service

By | Miscellaneous

In order to accept all children who qualify for our programs, 4 Paws for Ability partners with client families to provide the funds necessary to provide a service dog in a partial payment for service model.  It costs between $40,000 – $60,000 to place a single service dog with a child or veteran.

The current fee for service is:  $17,000

4 Paws for Ability manages an organizational fundraising program through their own development department and with assistance from volunteer fundraisers locally and around the country to cover the remaining funds needed to provide a service dog.

Most of our families engage in fundraising activities within their communities to raise this fee.  It is not required or expected that families provide full payment at the time of application.  On average families who chose to fundraise are able to complete fundraising in 6 months, however some take more or less time.  There is no limit on the amount of time it can take a family to fundraise and 4 Paws will never expire your raised funds.

4 Paws does require that families have an approved application and signed fundraising agreement on file before fundraising for your service dog.  This is for the protection of both the client and 4 Paws.  If you are ready to apply, please visit the Application Process page and the Child Application page.

Kai and Tornado

By | Miscellaneous

14670604_1359603430719559_1631371118711813473_nOn Tuesday, October, 18 we shared a very special story of one of our newest matches…and to say the least it rocked our world.  It was picked up by Facebook pages, media stations for print and TV.  Below is the original post, and a list of everywhere you can see Kai and Tornado.  Follow along with their story and watch them spread love, awareness, and acceptance across the world!

“I’m not sure why, but people still ask us why we place service dogs with children sometimes. Let me help you understand, from a momma who knows first hand:

See this moment? 
I’ve never experienced a moment like this.

I thought about not sharing it for embarrassment of my ugly cry face, but i decided it’s too important not to share.
This picture was taken near the end of the day after my autistic five year old was finally able to sit down with his new Service Dog Tornado. He flew across the entire ocean, stopped in multiple states, and uprooted his entire routine to travel the globe for this. He was so overwhelmed through the day that he had to leave to take a break for a couple hours before he could come back. This boy is the strongest child I have ever met; he has faced countless rude and ignorant adults and children who do not understand him, who have hurt him, and who have not valued him because he is different. This picture captures the face of a mother who saw her child, who she can’t hug, wash, dress, snuggle and touch freely lay on his new Service dog of his own free will, with a purposeful unspoken attachment. This is the face of a mom who has seen her son experience countless failed social interactions on the playground in an attempt to have a friend. Any friend. Any kind of connection. She has sat with her son while he has cried at night for months because he has no consistent connections outside of the family no matter how hard he tries and no matter what he works hard on in his Autism therapies. It doesn’t transfer to the natural occurring world for him. And now she is sitting behind her son silently watching this moment, with the air sucked from her lungs, and no words to say. 
Holding her mouth and silently crying because she doesn’t want to distract him from the moment and break him away from a pure, honest, and truly fulfilling moment for her son-of his own free will. This is truly magic. Words cannot explain it.

I have cried so many times for this boy, but this is the very first time I have cried for a reason like this.

It’s new, it’s painful, it’s wonderful, and it’s grateful. I will always stand behind this boy (probably still crying ) but I am grateful that he will have Tornado to stand beside him. The 4 Paws magic is real. The wait is long, but this moment right here makes it worth every moment of waiting. It’s worth every fight for services for my son, every diagnosis, every new provider, every dollar spent, every paper filled out, every school meeting, every shed tear, every step forward, every step back, and every wonder of the unknown future. Some how because of this- because of Tornado- I know everything will be okay.”

  • P&G’s Eukanuba Division donates 44,800 pounds of Eukanuba to 4 Paws for Ability! Did you know that we typically spend about $8,000 a month on dog food? With this donation by P&Gof 44,800 pounds of dog food, we should be spending only about $1,000 for dogs on special foods for a while. So it cut our spending by $7,000 a month and Eukanuba is $1 a pound so this is the equivalent of a $44,000 donation.
