Additional Information
Sterling Service Dogs does not receive any funding from the state or federal government or the United Way.  We primarily rely on contributions from the public to enable us to train service dogs and social therapy dogs for disabled children and adults.  Without financial help from caring people, our program to improve the quality of life through partnership with a service dog could not exist.

We would like to explain the way in which funding sources provide money to cover the cost of training assistance dogs.  Because there are very limited unrestricted funds available for the sponsorship of a service or social therapy dog, our teams are sometimes sponsored through restricted funding.

Unrestricted Funds: donation given to Sterling Service Dogs which are to be used to further the purpose of the organization as stated in its 501(c)3 non profit documentation.  (1) Dogs (2) Education.

Restricted Funds: donations to an organization that are restricted by the donor to specific geographical areas, states, countries, cities, people, type of assistance dog or in any other way a donor wishes.

Important Note:  Pursuant to the request of some donors, we have agreed to restrict the use of their donation to a specific individual or family who has applied for a service or social therapy dog.  Accordingly, this type of donation is not eligible for deduction as a charitable contribution.  Donors should consult their own independent tax advisor as to the appropriate tax treatment of this type of donation to Sterling Service Dogs.

We are very grateful for the support of our donors.
