Hello friends and supporters,

We are having a great year here at Ry-con Service Dogs and need your help.  Our facility in Apex is now at capacity and we want to expand the kennel space and dog runs to allow us to train more Service Dogs in the coming months.  Our program is under 1/2 of the cost from traditional Service Dog organizations and we rely heavily on donations and commit a lot of funds ourselves as a family.

This project will allow families to start their dogs earlier than planned and help us continue to subsidize the cost of selecting, purchasing, training and placing Autism and PTSD Service Dogs.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated and you can always follow our progress through our website, Facebook or the multiple community boards we contribute to daily.

Kennel Space Materials : $7500.00
Kennel Crates, Supplies : $5000.00
Outside Fencing and ground cover : $6500.00
New Leads, Materials, and Vest: $500
Veterinary Care for 2015-2016: $2500.00
Food, Bones and Training for 2015-2016: $3000.0

Note: All donations are tax deductible. We are a registered non-profit and will provide receipt documentation upon request.
