It takes approximately $20,000 to train a full service dog. In order to continue to place dogs with recipients free of charge, we rely on the donations of our friends. Please consider making a donation to our organization by clicking the Donate button below or set up your Kroger Plus card or shop Amazon Smile. PwP is a Better Business Bureau approved charity and is a 501(c)3 organization and therefore your donation could be tax deductible. Please check with your tax adviser for specifics related to your circumstances.
