At Canine Therapy for First Responders, we are committed to ensuring that all the funds raised go directly towards our Service/Facility Dogs and their well-being. We believe in providing the best possible care for our furry heroes who serve alongside first responders and veterans.
The funds raised play a crucial role in supporting the health and maintenance of our Service/Facility Dogs. From regular veterinary check-ups to necessary medical treatments and vaccinations, we prioritize the physical well-being of our four-legged partners.
Additionally, these funds are utilized to cover the expenses associated with placing canines into their facilities. Additionally this includes travel costs to ensure that these highly trained canines are safely transported to their designated locations and a lifetime of ongoing training. We are not formally funded, nor Government funded.
By investing in CTFFR and contributing towards our cause, you are directly supporting the vital work of these Service/Facility Dogs. Your generosity enables us to continue providing life-saving assistance to first responders and veterans while ensuring that our furry hero’s receive the care they deserve.
