SGA is raising funds for Freedom Service Dogs of America!

Based just outside of Denver, FSD is a nonprofit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by rescuing dogs and custom training them for individual client needs. Their service dogs end up serving children, veterans and active duty military and other adults.

Throughout 2017, SGA will be working with members to raise enough money to rescue, treat, train and ultimately graduate a service dog with FSD.

This is an exciting opportunity, but we need your help! It costs around $30,000 to get a dog ready to serve. By helping SGA meet our goal, you will forever change the life of someone in need.

  • You can donate here or onsite at the ESHT Conference.
  • Shirts will be for purchase at the conference and proceeds will go to Freedom Services Dogs of America.
