Naming Opportunities

Dog Opportunities

Name a Puppy for $1,000

At KSDS, we strive to give a unique name to each of our puppies. Although many of our puppies are named based upon their litter theme, we do receive some puppies on an individual basis. By submitting a $1,000 donation, you, or your company, will receive the honor of naming one of these puppies.

 

Sponsor a Litter for $10,000

KSDS names each litter through the use of a common theme. This helps to prevent the use of common names that may be repeated.

A litter may be sponsored for $10,000. By sponsoring a litter, you get to choose the litter theme and the names of each puppy fitting that theme.

Fund an Assistance Dog Team for $25,000

Each assistance dog we provide is valued at $25,000. By providing $25,000 in donations, your contribution will cover the cost of housing, training, veterinary care, travel, equipment, and other related expenses for one assistance dog. In return, your name will be added to the “Team Sponsorship” plaque displayed at KSDS and you, or your company, will be recognized in our KSDS newsletter and online.

Building Opportunities

The estate must have a value of at least $100,000 for a program to be named after the deceased. Examples of programs include: Pups Day, Grad Retreat, and local fundraisers.
