OUR MISSION - Because everyone deserves a Buddy!™
Inspired by the unconditional love from Buddy we decided to make it our mission to reach out into the world and start making a difference. A dogs love can transform hearts, lives and the world around you (as many of us know!) For some people, a service dog is not only brings this change but bring mobility, independence and pride. It can costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place one assistance dog. Our mission is to raise money for individuals who can not afford to get a Service Dog. We have linked up with these foundations; America’s VetDogs, GuideDog Foundation, Diabetic Alert Dogs of America, and more! Every purchase 10% goes to our great cause. Wearing Buddy By The Sea we encourage you to be adventurous. You can make a difference. Loving just as unconditionally as your furry BFF!

BUDDY 4 BUDDY: GIVING BACK!
We pledge to donate 10% of our net proceeds to getting service dogs to those in need! We are working with several different Service Dog Organizations to make this happen.
We launched ‘Buddy by the Sea’ to bring awareness and support to a cause that is really important to us.
Here are some the organizations we are working with:
About Diabetic Alert Dogs of America:
To provide individuals and families that are challenged by Diabetes with world class Service Dogs. These service dogs provide quality of life by providing independence, companionship, and lifesaving abilities.
Their Diabetic Alert Dogs are trained to alert diabetic handlers in advance of low (hypoglycemia) or high (hyperglycemia) blood sugar events before they become dangerous. The Diabetic Alert Dog's early detection allows the handler to take the proper steps to return their blood sugar to a normal healthy range. Once the dog senses the drop it will physically push on the sleeping person to awake them so that they can administer more insulin or sugar depending on whether levels are low or high. If the dog can’t wake the diabetic sufferer then they go to family members to get their attention. The animal will be persistent, and it is going to save my life many, many times.
We encourage you to be adventurous, dream higher than the sky and deeper than the ocean. You can make a difference. Buddy by the Sea is all about enjoying the moments in our daily lives and showing compassion to everyone. Be the one who will make a difference.
About Americas VetDogs Foundation
To help those who have served our country honorably live with dignity and independence.
The service dog programs of America’s VetDogs® were created to provide enhanced mobility and renewed independence to veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders with disabilities, allowing them to once again live with pride and self-reliance. Not only does a service dog provide support with daily activities, it provides the motivation to tackle every day challenges.
VetDogs trains and places service dogs for those with physical disabilities; guide dogs for individuals who are blind or have low vision; service dogs to help mitigate the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder; hearing dogs for those who have lost their hearing, and facility dogs as part of the rehabilitation process in military and VA hospitals.
It costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place one assistance dog; however, all of VetDogs’ services are provided at no charge to the individual. Funding comes from the generosity of individuals, corporations, foundations, businesses, and community organizations.
Once they make the decision to get a service dog, applicants become part of VetDogs’ open and welcoming community. Students will come to our 10-acre campus in Smithtown, New York, for our two-week in-residence training program. Classes are kept small to ensure personalized attention for each student and their new dog. Over the course of the time spent with us, the student and dog bond and learn how to work together as a team. They are supported with an uncompromising commitment to excellence, from highly empathetic and certified trainers to a meticulously constructed curriculum. — Vetdogs.org
