Sponsor a Puppy

Individuals, companies, schools, or organizations can sponsor a puppy as it is being raised and learning to become a service dog. With a minimum donation of just $250, the sponsoring person or organization will have the honor of naming the puppy and receiving a “paw”-signed photo of the pup named. Additional sponsorship opportunities include tickets to the puppy’s graduation ceremony, progress updates, gift packages and more!

Sponsorship offers the chance to honor a beloved pet, family member, or friend with a name of choice. Your sponsorship directly supports our mission-driven work by:

  • Providing expert training throughout the critical 18-month puppy raising period.
  • Covering routine medical care and vaccinations for the service dog in training.
    Providing a quality CST leash, collar, and vest for the service dog’s working life.
  • Providing food, toys, and enrichment for the puppy while in training.
  • And so much more!


Yes, many sponsors opt to honor a special individual with the puppy name they choose. In memoriam names are encouraged and warmly welcomed.

Yes, you can sponsor a puppy as a gift for someone else. Simply indicate this in the sponsorship form and provide the recipient’s information. All rewards will be sent directly to the individual you are gifting to.

Absolutely! From time to time, we have opportunities to sponsor a shelter or rescue dog who is beginning their journey to becoming a service dog. If you prefer to sponsor a shelter dog instead of a puppy, simply let us know in the comments of your interest form and we will contact you as soon as one becomes available for sponsorship.

The Diamond and Gold sponsorship opportunities do involve meeting the puppy either at promotional events, or at the puppy’s graduation ceremony.

Your sponsorship of your puppy in the program lasts for as long as they are in their training program with CST.

All names are subject to approval by CST.
