Costs for Service Dogs
At Honeys Garden for Medical Alert Dogs it costs between R80,000 – R100,000 to train and place a service dog with a disabled person, depending on what type of service dog is needed. 
Our Emotional support dogs (Therapy Dogs) cost up to R40,000 and can be trained to work in specific facilities and care centres or console a owner in their home environment.
The family contribution for a service dog is  R50,000. Through our partial payment for service model, our families can pay or engage in fundraising activities to cover the fee.
Honeys Garden is actively working on getting corporate and private sponsorship to bring this amount down as much as possible through subsidizing.
 To obtain a Service dog from outside of South Africa the amount can range from a minimum of R200,000 to over R400,000!
We implore the community to aid us in this journey and advocate for Honeys Garden, so that we can help as many people as possible at the best possible rate. 
Honeys Garden service dogs are required to be re-certified annually with Honeys Garden to maintain their skills and public access proficiency. There is no fee associated with this requirement and service dog recipients are not required to travel to Cape Town.​​​​​​​
Honeys Garden is a nonprofit company (2016/387235/08) whose mission is to place quality service dogs with people within South Africa who are under privileged, fighting with disabilities or diseases, and veterans who have lost use of limbs or hearing. We also help with animal rescue, and educate the public regarding use of service dogs in public places.
