Glitter Beard Challenge - PHARMDog

Created December 1, 2017
We will be accepting donations for P.H.A.R.M. Dog USA. If we exceed the goal Mr. Sharkfarmer Podcast will have to get the glitter beard treatment and post the results on twitter for all to enjoy. Not only will we get to enjoy the look but we'll have the bonus of knowing Rob will find glitter for years after this.

Our fundraising recipient for this challenge is P.H.A.R.M Dog USA.

The goal of P.H.A.R.M. Dog USA (Pets Helping Agriculture in Rural Missouri) is to provide trained service or herding dogs to farmers and their family members with disabilities. Those eligible for services may have any type of disability -- physical, cognitive, or illness-related. Dogs can be placed in States outside of Missouri.

P.H.A.R.M. Dog USA trains and places dogs in two categories:
Service Skill dogs are trained to do a variety of assistance tasks such as retrieving or picking up dropped tools, opening a latch gate system, or carrying buckets. These lab or lab mixes can also assist in physical tasks such as standing and bracing if a farmer has stability issues, or going for help. Jackie Allenbrand determines the needs of prospective clients, makes farm assessments, and facilitates placement of the dogs. She and another trainer handle the training for the dogs and their new owners.

Herding Dogs, primarily border collies, help farmers manage their livestock. These dogs are currently donated by a friend and supporter of P.H.A.R.M. Dog USA in Plattsburg, Missouri, who helps train both the dogs and farmers.  P.H.A.R.M. Dog USA also has a trainer in Packwood, Iowa.

P.H.A.R.M. Dog USA is funded through small grants and public donations. All the dogs are trained by farmers on the farm. Costs to deliver a trained dog run between $2500 and $4000 depending on the dog's job. These costs cover spay/neuter, health care, food,  hours of training,  travel for farm assessment and deliver, etc. Because training gets slowed down in Missouri winters one of their goals is to have a training center.

If we raise $2500 by December 20, 2017 Rob Sharkey has to post a glorious Glitter Beard for all to see.
