The W.A.G.S. 4 Kids Partner Placement Scholarship Fund
When you give to the Partner Placement Scholarship Fund, you support ALL of our Kids in Need, who may be stuck in the trenches and unable to cross the finish line. W.A.G.S. Scholarship Fund is authorized to make an annual contribution supporting grants for Kids In Need to cross the fundraising finish line towards their service dog for life.
Every year, around the holiday season, an eagerness to spread joy and the season’s spirit of giving brings out a little extra kindness in all of us. That kindness, I’m happy to say has known no boundaries since 2021, as parents who succeeded in their fundraising efforts have "left no man behind" and offered a helping hand to those who struggle and cheered their success.
You joined the "love" and helped to spread joy and sweetness at W.A.G.S.inCLE "Pure Imagination" Gala (Oct 21, 2022) raising $75,000; over $25,000 of which was directed to the Partner Placement Scholarship Fund, and granting 4 scholarships to kids in need in December 2021.
Counting their sleeps each night our children lie snug in their beds, as visions of service dogs dance in their heads. A service dog who puts his warm, soft head in their lap on command (“Love”) and provides a deep pressure therapy better than any blanket. Who stands assuredly by their side as they transition back into the classroom. These dogs provide, in many ways, the only sense of routine many of our kids have.
We continue to focus on what is truly important – our kids – but we cannot do it without you.

Thank You For Making Our Kids Lives Part of YOUR Future Plans.
Businesses, families and fellow foundations have given their time and support to help us make a difference in children's lives.
The total cost of raising and training a single service dog is $28,000! In order for the organization to supplement those costs we host quarterly major events and pop-ups all summer long! Join us or host one of your own! We'd love to hear all of your ideas!
