Canines of Hope is a non-profit organization that will be working to provide one family every year in Washtenaw County with a Diabetic Service Dog.
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.
We have a fundraiser event coming up on Friday, April 12th 2013 and will be held at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in
Saline, Mi. This fundraiser will be to support the 'Service Dog for Ella' fundraising efforts to get Ella Naebeck her Diabetic Service Dog.
The event will have food, BYOB, music, comedian, silent auction, party vendors and more!
See our photos page for the event flyer.
Please sign our guest book, we would love to hear from you!
