NSD’s Canine Assisted Intervention Dogs are valued at $40,000 over their eight to ten year working life; however, CAI dogs are provided free of charge to approved clients in the non-profit sector. *If you are in the private/corporate sector, please inquire about our Fee for Service Model.
NSD receives no government funding and relies entirely on donations from the general public, corporate sponsors, fundraising events, and community supporters.
Clients are encouraged to fundraise, but not obligated. Fundraising efforts are in no way tied to when and if they receive a CAI Dog. NSD also has many third party fund raisers that host events in support of our working dogs.
