In recognition of the care and support provided by service animals, Side by Side has created the Side by Side Giving Fund, a 501(c)(3) established to provide nutritious and balanced whole food diets to caring service, emotional support, and therapy dogs. This is our way of saying “Thank you” for their service and to help them live long, healthy, and happy lives. 

The selected participants, Side by Side Heroes, will receive regular shipments of nutritious recipes to support their dietary needs, identified using the Side by Side Balance Indicator, at no cost. 

There are many kinds of assistance animals, all providing a great service to those who rely on their support. Working closely with our partners and communities, we will give our Heroes the highest quality nutrition to ensure they and those they care for will be Side by Side for many happy and healthy years. 

Honor a Hero
