Angel Pups was created to financially support children in need of a service dog.
The idea for Angel Pups occurred as the Pearce Family Foundation was receiving a large amount of applications to assist with paying for service dogs for children. In 2015 Executive Council Charities gave the Pearce Family Foundation the opportunity to fund and create Angel Pups with a grant awarded to the Foundation specifically for the purpose of funding the Angel Pups program. Thank you for believing in our cause and allowing us to give back to children in our community!
PFF will grant a portion ($1,500) of the funds needed to families that have a child (ages 5-17) who will benefit from the assistance of a service dog for medical reasons. Each grant is limited to one $1,500 per family.
To qualify for the “Angel Pups” grant program each family must:
- Live in Arizona and work with a “local” organization who trains and provides service dog
- Must secure at least 75% of the funding goal at the time of the application.
- Submit an application anytime each quarter (March, June, September, December)
- Apply only once a calendar year
