How You Can Help

Stiggy’s Dogs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides psychiatric service dogs to our military veterans free of charge.  We are only able to do that with the help of a community of people who have stepped forward to be heroes for veterans and shelter dogs.  We rely on donations, sponsorships and other funding to continue our programs.

There are many ways in which you can help.

On average, it costs $6,500 to train and deploy one psychiatric service dog.  Monetary donations enable us to pay for the basic needs of the dogs as well as the travel and housing needs of the veterans while in training.

Monetary Donations

Donations can be made through our secure Rally fundraising site by echeck or credit card.  Rally allows you to stay informed about Stiggy’s Dogs, make one time donations or set up recurring donations.

We also accept checks and money orders in person or through the mail.  Donations can be made by check or money order sent to our main address:
