Dog Pick-Up Fundraising

Hi Everyone,

In just under 4 weeks we leave for Ohio to meet and receive Rosalie's service dog! We are driving with the whole family to finally add this new member to our family. We are fundraising to help cover travel, lodging, and dog related expenses. We will be in Ohio for two whole weeks taking an intensive class with Rosalie's new service dog.

Our fundraising goal is $7000. We need to have it all raised by July 25th!

  • Cash (use donation link to the right.)
  • Gas Cards (Chevron, Shell, Texaco, 76, etc)
  • Grocery gift cards (Dorothy Lane Market, Trader Joe's, Kroger)
