WHO CAN GET-A-WAG?
Who is Eligible for Get-A-Wag?
Get-A-Wag is a Toy Therapy Dog Foundation that places puppies and adult dogs with children, adults, and facilities. These dogs will give emotional support to those having physical or emotional special needs. Those with unusual financial needs may qualify for a discounted price. Active duty military families also may qualify for a discount. Sometimes we can place a puppy free of charge.
How Do You Apply?
You may nominate yourself or another individual or facility with our online application. We ask that you send descriptions or stories detailing why you think you or this person should receive an emotional support therapy puppy. We like you to focus on the challenges this person faces and send pictures of them engaged in their typical and favorite activities. Tell us if there are unusual financial constraints in purchasing a puppy or therapy dog.
How is the Recipient Selected?
We do have a steady stream of applicants, so discounts may be limited to $100 depending on how many puppies have recently been placed. Receipients will be judged on the basis of need and also on the quality of your descriptions and pictures submitted. The cost of air-shipping is $450 to $550 unless you pick your puppy up in person. Ground shipping may be available for as little as $150 depending on where you are located.
