Service Dog Sponsorship

Help us turn a puppy into a life-changing service dog. 

Cocky's Canine PAALS is a student organization at the University of South Carolina that supports the non-profit, Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services (PAALS).

PAALS is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to enriching and empowering children and adults with physical disabilities and social needs by training service animals and providing animal assisted educational and recreational activities. To learn more about PAALS please visit their website at

PAALS works hard to help those in need of service dogs get a helpful companion at little cost to the client. One of the ways to do that is through puppy name sponsorship. If you donate $1,500 to a puppy's primary service dog training you can help decide on their name. Cocky's Canine PAALS fundraising goal this year is to raise $1,500 to sponosor a puppy. 

If you want to have a part in helping a dog grow to help someone in need, please donate today. You can include a name in the comment with a minimum $10 donation to be an option for our final puppy name. Please keep in mind, that our organization has the discretion to choose the most appropriate name and that 'Cocky' is not an approved name. 

Heres How:
1. Donate a minmum of $10
2. Write your preferred puppy name in the comment section when making your donation
It's that easy!

Note: You can submit as many different names as you would like or have everyone in your family submit the same name for a possible increase in consideration. Each name submission, whether repeating or different, is a minimum of $10. Please keep in mind that Cocky's Canine PAALS has the final approval on names and that 'Cocky' is not an approved option. 

Thank you for helping PAALS continue to provide more than just a service dog, but a lifelong friend to those in our community who are in need.
