We have seen first hand the benefits a DAD can bring to a T1 Diabetic. Unfortunately, Diabetic Alert Dogs are very expensive, and insurance does not cover the cost. This creates a financial obstacle that many T1 Diabetics can’t overcome. That’s why we formed Dollars for DADs.
We incorporated Dollars for DADs, a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, in May 2014 with the sole purpose of providing financial assistance to T1 (insulin dependent) Diabetics for the purchase of a Diabetic Alert Service Dog (DAD).
Sadie is Becky's Diabetic Alert Dog, a member of the family and our best friend. She showed us how helpful a DAD can be and she won our hearts. She was the inspiration for Dollars for DADs.
