Canines of Hope is a non-profit organization that will be working to help raise money for one family every year in Washtenaw County to be placed with a Diabetic Service Dog. We will also work with families that have a Type 1 Diabetic with other needs they might have such as helping to pay for camp, medical supplies, etc.  

Diabetic Service Dogs are trained to smell the changes in a persons scent.  These dogs can detect a change in a persons blood sugar roughly 30 minutes before the glucose meter even shows that there is a problem.  The dogs are trained to "alert" so the person knows there is a potential problem and allows them time to test and treat a high or low blood sugar before it becomes dangerous.  These dogs are very expensive and take a long time to train, but ultimately they can save lives!  We are very excited to introduce Canines of Hope and we are looking forward to expanding our website and our organization in hopes of touching the lives of the families here in our local community.
