Foundations for the Future
The Foundations for the Future fundraising initiative began with our new Kathy Foreman Client House and Training Facility and includes the creation of the new Laura J. Niles Early Learning Center and completely renovated Hawkins Foundation Canine Center.
NEADS would like to thank those who have supported our Foundations for the Future, including our most recent Hawkins Canine Center fundraising initiative. Your support has helped us create a state-of-the-art Canine Center and Early Learning Center/Nursery.
Foundations for the Future Completed Projects
Deborah Hawkins Foundation Canine Center Renovation - COMPLETED 2019
Renovated from the ground up, our new Canine Center is a cutting edge Service Dog facility, designed to minimize stress by providing an environment that is healthier for our staff and dogs. Learn more about the center here.
Laura J. Niles Early Learning Center Renovation - COMPLETED 2018
The success of our program starts with our puppies. Prior to breaking ground on the new kennel for adult dogs, we revitalized a building on our property to accommodate our newly arriving puppies. NEADS pups spend up to two weeks on our campus. During that time, our puppy instructors begin teaching basic obedience. Between lessons, the puppies have plenty of time to play, and receive lots of attention from our staff and volunteers.
NEADS Nursery - COMPLETED 2018
Construction of the Whelping Center Nursery took place in the Spring of 2017. The center allows NEADS to start a small, complimentary breeding program. The new addition to campus is located in close proximity to the Early Learning Center to facilitate transfer when puppies reach 8 weeks of age.
Kathy Foreman Client House and Training Center - COMPLETED 2015
The new building, which was designed with client input, includes 7 bedrooms, some with adjacent access for care providers, 1 two-bedroom apartment, 1 handicapped accessible kitchen, 3 handicapped accessible bathrooms, 1 training area, 2 conference rooms, 1 two-story elevator, 1 large meeting area and a handicapped accessible pathway to the main facility.
Foundations for the Future - Breeding Center
NEADS is currently raising $2.6M to create a new Breeding Center and satellite campus, continuing our Foundations for the Future initiative. Learn about this project and how you can support our efforts.
