Make a Dream Come True

Every day people across South Africa are busy raising money so that they or their children can have a Medical Service Dog that could change their lives. The family contribution donation is currently R60,000. Honey’s Garden is actively working to reduce this amount via sponsors and financial assistance.
If you would like to make a family's dream come true, pop us an email to view a selection of the letters we have received from these deserving families.

It costs Honey’s Garden between R100,000 and R120,000 to fully train a service dog for each family. The family contribution fee only represents half of this cost. If you would like to assist a family with their fee you can make a donation and show your support in one of the following ways:
Online Donations:
Visit our Donate Now page and make a direct donation. Make sure that you use the family name in your reference in order for the donation to be allocated correctly. 
You are also welcome to email us regarding this donation. We are extremely grateful to all of our donors and sponsors for helping in any way that they can. It takes a team to raise a service dog and our donors are certainly a part of that team!
We are very happy to give marketing and media coverage to any private or corporate donors who would like the recognition.

Honey’s Garden has no time limit on how long it takes families to raise the fee for service, we understand that families with advanced medical needs may have unexpected life events that postpone their fundraising work. We also receive part donations which are deducted from their total outstanding amount – this is why you may see different total amounts needed across each story: it reflects how much the family is still in need of. These amounts will be updated weekly.
Some families elect not to list on the Make a Dream Come True page.  If you would like to confirm someone is fundraising with us or want to ensure your donation helps the right child, you can call for assistance.
Honeys Garden is a nonprofit, 2016/387235/08 organization 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.
