Please help us to help more kids and dogs. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

What is the best gift you've ever received? Is it a fancy car? A piece of expensive jewelry? Perhaps a new house with all the amenities? Please share your best gift with us! Our executive director will start out with a picture of her favorite gift she's ever received. It was given to her ...by 13-year-old girl and her mother, who have received a service dog from us for her, and through the years, two service dogs for her big brother. This gift took a year and a half for them to make this magnificent needle point. Best gift ever. Thank you RB and LB! What's YOUR favorite gift????

What is the best feeling in the world? It is giving of oneself, foregoing that extra latte, new outfit or expensive purse, that tool you'll never use that will sit in your shed, it may not seem like much to you, but together, we can all donate what we can, so that children on our list can have... the service dogs that will change their lives. Even giving $10 a week, or a one-time donation, which may not seem much to you, can change lives forever. In this cold and sometimes evil world, we at Merlin's KIDS, provide life and hope for special kids and their families, and for veterans who put their lives on the line for us. Our largest donor, who is anonymous, has donated more than most people will see in a lifetime, and our smallest donor, who maybe gave $5 one time, are all crucial. If everyone seeing this post could donate $5 or $10 or $20 or $1,000 or whatever you can, we would be able to place service dogs with every child on our long list. Please share and give what you can. Together we will Stamp Out evil, fight for the good we all know exists in almost every person in this world, and together, we will save the world, two lives at a time(TM).

Donate to help the next group of special kiddos and veterans be blessed with a Merlin’s KIDS Service Dog 🐕‍🦺 🐕 ❤️ ❤️

Such a beautiful honor. Thank you Carly! We are grateful for you too sweetheart!

For those of you unfamiliar with just how young our incredible service dog training begins, in this video, these puppies are only 6 weeks old. Most people have no concept of how very long and tedious the process can be, and just how early we start. Watch this video and remember that these puppies ...are 6 weeks old. They've already had training since the moment they were born and have already mastered three skills. Notice the first boy attempting to pull the hands and arms down from self-harm, and the second one literally doing full crossbody comfort immediately. Of course we will be continuing this on for the next year and a half, but we thought you would all enjoy seeing how much work and time goes into each of our incredible unparalleled Merlin's Kids service dogs. And yes, these are two six week old Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies, one of whom will be donated to this great organization. Enjoy the video!

Thank you so much denise. We are grateful for your support.

Great doubleheader SERVICE DOG PLACEMENT week for Merlin's KIDS Service Dogs! Jen is off in Colorado placing Chester with an adorable little girl, while Janice is in Albany, placing the famous Sliver Oslivia, lol So many placements this time of year every year! Many more to go, and so many ...special children we need to help. Only 3 months from the application to the placement! We have such amazing dogs ready to go for special kiddos and veterans!

It's that time of year when we need to ask everyone to consider our organization for donations and support. This is a particularly trying year with covid and the economy and so many other things, but we are forging ahead with the help of many, to save the lives of shelter dogs, training them ...over one and a half to two years, 1500 to 2000 hours each, to become service dogs for special needs children and for veterans. Please share and tell others about the great work we do. We are not ones to brag about all the things we do, but what we do is nothing short of incredible. If you are a recipient family, feel free to share your story with us here, and if you are in need of a service dog, or wish to make a donation, or conduct a birthday fundraiser on Facebook or any other way you'd like to help, please do so knowing that your donations are going directly to program services which means it goes right to the dogs and the kids. Please reach out to us on our website www.MerlinsKids.org

Thank you so much Todd for choosing us as your charity! We wish you a very happy birthday and ask that everyone help you to celebrate this joyous occasion by making a donation in your honor. Happy birthday Todd! Thank you so very very much!

We have been saying this for years. Please do not use cheap rawhides for your dogs as they may come from china, most likely, and can have toxic substances in them. If you're going to use something, make sure it's from the US and make sure that you supervise your dog with them. Too many ...dogs gobble them down especially at the end, and adding the extra about the poisons and toxins that can be in them, please use other items rather than hard cheap rawhide
