Puppy Donation Process

If you would like to donate a puppy, please Contact Us or call the CHAMP Office, 314-653-9466. We would be happy to speak with you and can let you know if we are currently in need of puppies.

Observation Period

We will ask you a few additional questions to help determine whether your puppy might be a suitable candidate for our program.

If your puppy appears suitable and we have room in the training program, we will schedule a temperament evaluation. Upon passing the evaluation, we will take him/her to our veterinarian for a general health exam.

If the general health of the puppy appears suitable, your puppy or dog will enter our program for observation. Our experienced handlers will interact with the puppy, and we may administer additional health screenings depending on the age of the puppy. CHAMP will pay the costs of all required health screenings.

If your puppy does not pass the temperament evaluation, the initial health exam, or the observation period, we will return your puppy to you with a full report regarding our findings.

The Observation Period may take a month or two, as we must schedule exams and then wait for test results.

Acceptance into our training program

At the successful conclusion of the observation period we will start your puppy in our service dog-in-training program!

We continually evaluate each dog's progress and occasionally remove dogs for health or temperament reasons. If your puppy is accepted into the training program but must later be removed for any reason, you will have right of first refusal. If you do not wish to have your dog returned to you, CHAMP will place the dog in a suitable pet home.

Donated puppies are a mainstay of our program, and we sincerely appreciate your interest. If you would like to talk with someone about donating a puppy to our program, please Contact Us or call the CHAMP Office, 314-653-9466.
