In the month of June I'm excited to be supporting an organization that supports veterans (I have a sister and brother-in-law who both are), diabetics (I have a sister-in-law who is), and autistics, and is expanding in our local area, Retrieving Freedom. In June I will be donating $0.50 for every comment on my blog during the month to them, and my friend Beth Ann from It's Just Life will be doing the same on her blog.
Retrieving Freedom, Inc. is a non-profit organization that trains service dogs for placement in three main areas: Veterans, Children with Autism, and Adults and Children with Diabetes. They breed and train the chosen dogs with specific traits needed for their duties as a service dog for those three specific areas. The dogs go through a two year training program before they're placed with an owner. Retrieving Freedom will customize the training of the dog to fit the precise needs of the person whom they will be placed with. As they say, "Retrieving Freedom is not a 'one dog for all' type of organization".
Retrieving Freedom operates out of two locations: Senatobia, Mississippi and Waverly, Iowa. Scott Dewey and the team in Waverly are excited to be having their Grand Opening of their Training and Placement facility on June 27th. You can check out the schedule here, or learn more on their Facebook page.
It takes $23,000-$25,000 to produce a fully trained Retrieving Freedom dog who are all associated with Assistance Dogs International. Let's help this worthy and noble organization by commenting on any post all month long. Thank you Shannon Latham at The Field Position for helping me become aware of this local organization.

I love your Comments for a Cause! If I ever start blogging again, I am totally going to do something similar!ReplyDelete
That'd be awesome! Let me know if and when you do.Delete
I find what you are doing here is a wonderful thing and this month’s cause is wonderful also. I love what RFI is doing and I have enjoyed watching their new facility go up near Waverly. I plan to attend their open house and also plan on participating in the Hawgs, Dogs, and Heroes ride which starts at the RFI facility that day. It should be fun. Keep up the good work with your Comments for a Cause.ReplyDelete
That is great to hear Hope! I can't make the open house so am actually going on a personal tour next week!Delete
