Type 1 Diabetics….PurposeFull Paws needs your help!

PurposeFull Paws is looking for individuals with Type I Diabetes who would like to volunteer for us – right from their own home!  PurposeFull Paws trains dogs for Diabetic Alert.  In order to do this training, we need diabetic samples from volunteers when their blood glucose levels are below 80 mg/dL.

It is super easy to get a sample!  We provide an entire kit of everything you need- including a step-by-step guide of how to gather the samples.

To quickly summarize:

You just check your blood glucose level to make sure it is below 80 mg/dL.  Then you put a small cotton roll (similar to what the dentist uses) in your mouth and move it around to absorb saliva, put it into special containers we provide and put it in your freezer.   Volunteers can drop the samples off at our training building or a PurposeFull Paws representative can pick them up at your home.

While this might sound like a small contribution- diabetic samples are SO IMPORTANT!  We can’t get our Diabetic Alert dogs ready to go with their partners without them.  Even after we have matched one of our dogs with a person who has Type 1 Diabetes, it is difficult for them to provide the number of samples that we need to complete their Diabetic Alert Dog’s training for placement.

Individuals with Type 1 Diabetes- please consider joining our PurposeFull Paws family by volunteering to provide these much needed samples for our applicants in need of a Diabetic Alert Dogs!  If you are interested- please email us at purposefullpaws@gmail.com or call our office at 304-229-0851.  Thank you so much for your consideration!!
