Looking for help…..
Posted by Jennifer on January 28, 2011
I am excited to say that Stiggy’s Dogs in ready for a training facility! Actually to really move forward we NEED a training facility….My vision for Stiggy’s Dog is here and now!
If you know anyone who has a house sitting (hasn’t sold, or free for winter months), a Barn, big Garage, a Office (Industrial/Flex space) for Rent or Lease. Looking for something temporarily (few months) to permanent (land contract or purchase). The dogs housed in this facility are all temperament tested, potty and crate trained, and well on their way to becoming a Service Dogs. (No worries about normal ‘pet concerns’).
Ultimately Stiggy’s Dogs will be more than just a training facility for our dogs. I am looking for property where we can house theses dogs and have enough room for Veteran housing too! Having a place for Veterans to come and stay while they are paired with their dogs is important for the ‘bonding’ process, so they can learn and train together before going in to the ‘outside’ world.
Stiggy’s Dogs has been patiently waiting for their 501c3 to move on to this next step. Grants needed to lease or purchase property has been hinging on this approval. We have received word from IRS, and our approval is in the works. However, we are already in the middle of a Boot Camp training for 4 dogs and Veterans, with many more in the waiting….
We can not wait any longer, which I why I am asking for immediate help….
Looking in the Southwest Michigan area , Wayne (preferably), Oakland, Livingston, or Washtenaw Counties. If you can, or know of someone who can help us reach this goal, please email me at email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support.
