How to Help



The Exceptional Sidekick Service Dogs is forever grateful for your help in the form of both time and money. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit philanthropy organization financially supported by your generous tax-deductible donations; corporation and foundation giving campaign; and bequests or other planned gifts. We need you! Psychiatric Service dogs are provided with required fundraising to clients across Connecticut.

We also offer an owner trained program where we assist clients in training their own psychiatric service dogs.


“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It’s not.”
~ Dr. Seuss


VOLUNTEER

It takes a village to raise these dogs and our village is filled with some very exceptional people. We always need volunteers to lend a hand at our events, fundraisers, and to join our committees. Our Board of Directors is made up completely of volunteers helping to grow our program and promote awareness to the incredible need of psychiatric service dogs in our community. Please consider joining us in making a difference in small and big ways every single day. [learn more…]


PUPPY RAISER

Our puppy raisers are our most important volunteers. They have made a commitment to open their hearts and homes to our puppies and help to nurture and prepare them to become amazing service dogs. Puppy raising has to be one of the most selfless acts of volunteerism and we are forever in debt to these amazing people. There are lots of kids to help and we need more generous, caring people to raise our dogs.  If you know anyone interested please let them know about our program and encourage them to reach out to us today.
