Philly Unleashed Gives Back!

$1,490 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 21 people in 14 months
The Philly Unleashed team is growing – by four paws!

We pride ourselves on using training to improve the lives of people and pets. We love what we do, but in true Philly Unleashed fashion, we’re itching for a new challenge! So we’re em”bark”ing on a new adventure – raising and training a service dog, who we will eventually give to a local resident in need.

 Our little bundle of joy – a Labrador Retriever bred from a long line of service dogs – is due in May, and will come to live with us full-time in early August. From the very beginning, he or she will train with our team of certified dog trainers to become the very best helper and companion for their eventual owner.

So how can you help? Raising a puppy takes a village, and we’d love for you to be part of ours! Our research has shown that a fully trained service dog can cost up to $30,000,  from purchase to training to placement. We are prepared to take on the bulk of that investment, but we would love your assistance in providing the very best for this little one.

Your donations will go directly toward the puppy’s food, veterinary care and help us pay the trainers who will be giving their blood, sweat and time into training this dog. Any funds we raise over what we use will be paid forward to the recipient of the dog in order to start them on the right path towards a harmonious new life together!

Bookmark this page for regular pupdates, and please think about contributing what you can!

Well, we're not quite ready to announce Buddha's new person yet, but we're getting close! In the meantime, Buddha was neutered (see: adorable photo with Oxford the Boston Terrier!), and we made an Amazon Wish List for all the stuff that would be helpful for Buddha when he goes to his new home: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/A0GKDK1VQNZW.

Thanks for hanging in there with us, and for all of your support!

There is a lot happening here at the farm! We have even MORE excitement we're going to share soon--including who Buddha's partner is. !!

Also, our fundraiser on February 17 went really well. We had a fabulous turn out, Buddha gave away SO many kisses (and tired himself out!), and we raised almost $1,500!

We are looking at ways to keep this going--we see the need, and we want to continue to help. More to come soon!

Read our most recent Buddha diaries here:
https://mailchi.mp/phillyunleashed.com/baby-buddha4-679157. Just another couple of words from the pup and some cute pictures!

We're no longer accepting applications, and we've started to interview prospects for Buddha's forever home. We're completing the first round of interviews, talking with three people who seem like a really great fit for this puppy.

Everything is moving along nicely, and we can't wait to announce who his permanent partner will be. In the meantime, come give him kisses at the Yappy Hour Meet and Greet on February 17! It's free! If you're 21 and over, bring your friendly pup and come hang with us.
Practicing his "go under" command.
Working at the farm makes him sleepy!
"Push" and "pull" combos!

Another message from Buddha! The deadline for applications is this Thursday, February 1, and we start interviewing next week. Also, be sure to join us Saturday, February 17 to give Buddha some kisses!

For his "service" aspect, I thought of Colonel. Combine that with his yellow coat and I come up with my final thought of Kernel.
