You did it!

July 01, 2019

1 Week. 143 Facebook shares. 32 Retweets. 78 Donors. $4,000 generously given. Sage is coming home. This fall she'll start meeting and greeting our ISU community and lifting their spirits. We couldn't have done it without you.


Our campaign has 22 days left to go, so now we turn to preparing our #FutureRedbird for move-in. We've given her a safety talk, signed her up for classes (Chasing Quad Squirrels 101, How to Pronounce Schroeder), and next comes outfitting her "dorm". Although we've reached our $4,000 goal, we all know how expensive the first year of dog care can be. So keep sharing Sage's story, we'll keep posting her progress as she shops at Bark, Bath, and Beyond, and hopefully we can raise a little extra to make Sage feel right at home.


On behalf of the entire Illinois State University Police Department and Sage, thank you for your support!



Halfway Home

June 25, 2019

Wow! We're just two days into our campaign to bring a Community Outreach Dog to University Police and the Illinois State community and we've hit the halfway mark. We're stunned. We're honored. Most of all, we're grateful. On behalf of everyone at University Police, thank you for your contribution.hatch


You can help us one more time; let your friends and family know you made a donation by sharing on social media or by email. Sage is super cute, but you are the greatest ambassador for what a Community Outreach Dog can do for this campus.


Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. We can see the finish line and it is because of you. Sage is coming home!
