Think about what you can do


We sincerely appreciate your visit to our site and thank you for your interest and support.

Sadie frequently visits schools and businesses teaching acceptance of people and animals with special needs.  The presentation includes how children should be kinder and gentler with every living creatures.


Children and adults love to hear Sadie’s story of focusing on what you CAN do and not what you CAN’T do!


We are looking for sponsors for the school visits with either a complete sponsorship or a matching sponsorship. This is a great way for children to have a real hands on experience with a dog who was at death’s door only to not only survive, but, thrive in the face of adversity.
Please contact us if you are interested in being a Sadie sponsor or email Joal Derse Dauer direct at
