Building Independence 800x200

Gifts to ECAD’s Capital Campaign have an impact on every aspect of our mission to enable people with disabilities to gain greater independence and mobility through the use of specially educated dogs. It is with sincere gratitude that we list our donors, whose continued generosity helps us thrive and ensures a secure future to pursue our goal to place more dogs with more people living with disabilities.



“Your generous donations make it possible for ECAD to change lives . . .
four paws at a time!”— Lu and Dale Picard, Co-Founders
