*Due to COVID-19, we are not currently holding puppy socialization events.
Would you like to hold puppy hugging at your organization or event?
Susquehanna Service Dogs’ litters of puppies are available for special puppy socialization events. We ask for a minimum donation to support our work to train and place the puppies as life-changing service dogs.
Please note that events are subject to the availability of our puppies.
For a $100 donation, you can provide a harness for one of our assistance dogs to wear in public with their partner.
For a $200 donation, you can provide all of the items that are given to a partner when they complete Team Training with their new assistance dog. Items include a leash and collar, treat pouch, clicker, food bowl, grooming tools, starter bag of dog food, heartworm and flea and tick preventatives, and more.
Donate items we use regularly, such as food for our dogs in advanced training, cleaning supplies, dogs crates, toys, and more. Items can be dropped off at our facility in Grantville, PA or you can call 717-599-5920 ext. 4 to make other arrangements.
Raising, training, and placing assistance dogs is a community effort. Volunteers, donors, and the community all play a role in supporting our puppies-in-training as they grow to become highly skilled, life-changing working dogs.
It takes over $30,000 to fully fund an assistance dog from the moment they’re born through their entire working life. We receive no government funding and only a small portion of our funding comes from fee for service, adoption fees, and merchandise sales. We rely on philanthropic support from corporations, foundations, and individuals to make it possible for dogs to change lives.
An assistance dog can make a huge difference in someone’s life, giving them independence, confidence, and hope. When you support Susquehanna Service Dogs, you share in that impact.
