To help ensure the success of each team, we have designed an intensive application process to assist with the placement and matching of our dogs.
Service Dogs are valued at $40,000 over their eight to ten year working life; however, each dog is provided free of charge to approved clients.
FTK-9 Inc receives no government funding and relies entirely on donations from the general public, corporate sponsors, fundraising events, and community supporters.
Clients are not obligated to fundraise, and fundraising efforts are in no way tied to when and if they receive their Service Dog; however, many assist our existing fundraising efforts or organize their own fundraisers.
The actual direct cost of the Service Dog to the client is their travel, accommodations and food costs during the Education Stage of the process.
Our application process is currently PAUSED. Please check back early 2024 for our next intake.
