Mindy Todd, The Point WOODS HOLE, MA (WCAI) — Service Dogs are essential in the day to day life of many people- individuals who are blind or low vision, those who have difficulty hearing, or remembering to take medication. Service Dogs can even alert people before they have seizure or if their blood sugar is getting too low. Not only are the dogs trained to perform tasks for their handlers, they create opportunity for independence, and provide companionship. Today we talk about service dogs, how they’re different from therapy or emotional support animals, and what it takes to train and pair a ..read more

Client Fundraising Basics – Part I
NEADS Blog

How is the money that I raise for NEADS used? You can find the official statement on the Client Fundraising Agreement that you signed. Let’s break it down a bit more though. All fundraising for NEADS, whether done by clients, members of the community, businesses, or other organizations, goes toward supporting the organization and its mission. Funds will never be earmarked for an individual’s benefit. This is why the $8,000 you are asked to raise is not a payment toward a dog. Fundraising for NEADS is no different than fundraising for any other charitable organization. If a ..read more

by Sage, Former NEADS Prison PUP Handler You would have had to have known the person I was before prison to fully grasp the impact the NEADS program has had on my overall development and transformation into who I am now. Abandoned as a baby, shuffled between orphanages, foster homes, group homes – I never felt valued. Anger and emptiness fueled my choices and caused ripple effects throughout my community that I couldn’t even see. This is who I used to be. I ended up in prison. While there, the programs I took part in were easy for me, and most of the time I “faked it to make it.” [That is, unt ..read more

by Sue Walsh, NEADS Maine Puppy Raiser since 2009 Everyone has their story of how or why they became a NEADS Puppy Raiser; mine started nearly 15 years ago. I began showing dogs in obedience competitions when I was16, and at that moment I knew I was meant for the world of dogs.

I apprenticed with an excellent trainer and eventually went out on my own. That’s where I met Kathleen Whalin, who came to my classes with the Service Dog in Training puppies she was raising for ..read more
