Sponsor Dotty today and share her amazing adventures as she trains to become a life-saving Medical Detection Dog
By sponsoring a Medical Detection Dogs puppy, you’ll be making a huge difference by helping to support their care and training. Sponsor a gorgeous puppy from just £5 a month and watch them grow from a bundle of fur to a fully qualified Medical Detection Dog.
It can take up to 2 years to train a puppy and costs £29,000 to care for, train, place and support a dog and his or her partner to become an accredited assistance dog team.
During their training they live with volunteer socialisers and their families. For as little as £5 a month you can help us create lots more life-saving Medical Alert Assistance Dog partnerships.
After completing their advanced training, your puppy will give freedom and independence to one of our clients – what an amazing gift.
When you sponsor a puppy you’ll receive:
A fantastic welcome pack
*Pack varies based on your gift amount.
Regular updates about your puppy’s training
The difference a sponsor puppy can make
Henry was once a sponsor puppy…
“Thank you for being my best friend, my hero, my reason for getting up in the morning.
Thank you for being my ray of sunshine on cloudy days and for licking up all the tears when it rains.
Thank you for keeping me safe and for always putting a smile on my face.”
Puppy sponsorship makes a great gift
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does puppy sponsorship last?
You will follow your puppy’s journey from their socialisers home, to their early puppy training and then on to their more advanced training with a final ‘pupdate’ once they have completed their training.
Your sponsorship will continue beyond the placement of the puppy. Your ongoing support will help us fund this, and other areas of our life-saving work
Am I the only person sponsoring the puppy?
We wouldn’t expect you to fund the total cost by yourself so by sponsoring a puppy each month it gives you and other people the opportunity to fund a puppy’s training as well as further areas of our vital work.
It’s a bit like the puppy having an extended family.
Will my money go to the puppy I sponsored?
Your donation will make a big difference and is very gratefully received. We receive no government funding and so rely on donations to continue our life-changing work.
Can I meet my sponsored puppy?
However, you’ll receive regular pupdates which will give you a fantastic insight into how your puppy is growing and all the different things they are getting up to.
Do all puppies complete their training?
If your puppy is unable to complete its training, it will be rehomed with a loving family and we will write to you to let you know.
