Give to the Max Day

November 18

Can Do Canines superhero dogs-in-training are excited to get to work, but we need your help to make sure they keep their capes! Your donation will ensure that we can continue to train these amazing dogs who are eager to start saving the day as their human partner’s superhero.

Give to the Max is a statewide outpouring of support for thousands of nonprofits and schools across Minnesota. Give to the Max Day 2021 is November 18, but we have matching funds available now, thanks to the Fred C. and Katherine B. Andersen Foundation and an anonymous donor.

Plus, if you donate $100 or more, you can submit your favorite puppy name for our newest litter of superheroes! Turn in your best canine name that starts with the letter “F,” and we will choose the winner on November 19.
