The Cost of a Project Chance Dog

Project Chance assistance dogs are raised, trained, coached, transported in public venues, and loved with thousands of accumulated volunteer hours. In order to prepare a dog for placement, we utilize the help of volunteers, private donors, corporate sponsors, and families. Project Chance values the donors committed to help support our training, and we respect the commitment shown by a family acquiring a service dog.

It costs Project Chance over $20,500 to obtain and train an assistance do>g in addition to the many hours provided by our volunteers. This cost includes professional training, boarding, purchase price, veterinary care, and supplies.

Please do not let price prevent you seeking one of our assistance dogs because we will work with you to cover this cost.

We have 3 different opportunities for obtaining a Project Chance assistance dog:

1) Endowment Area - Nassau, Duval, Baker, St. Johns, and Clay Counties: An endowment, graciously provided by Ms. Eleanor Blanchard, provides scholarships of $18,000 per individual service dog for families living in these five counties. The receiving families are required to pay the remaining $2,500 of the cost of an assistance dog.

2) Non-Endowment Area: For families outside this five county area, we charge $15,000 per individual service dog. We assume that we will receive donations and grants for each dog of $5,500, and that the families will be responsible for the rest.

3) Classroom or Organization Therapy Dogs: Since our endowment does not cover classroom or other organization dogs, we charge $15,000 per dog. We assume that we will receive donations and grants for each dog of $5,500, and that the organizations will be responsible for the rest.
