Leader Dog Sponsorship 
When someone sponsors a Leader Dog puppy, they will get a puppy profile sheet, a 5x7 photo and 4 wallet size pictures of the puppy, and an Official Certificate of Sponsorship.  If your club or someone just loves dogs, call me and I will give instructions 
 on how to sponsor a beautiful puppy.  The cost of sponsorship is $500.00
