1. What ages of children do you serve?

We serve all ages of children from birth to 17 years old

2. What areas do you serve?

We serve Ohio, Southern Michigan, and Eastern Indiana. It is very important that we are able to provide continual support to you after your placement with a dog so we need to be in close proximity. 

3. How much money does it cost for one of your dogs?

Lodestar Dogs are FREE to the client. However, it costs Lodestar up to $15,000 to place one dog. For this reason, we encourage clients to help us fundraise and will provide clients with ideas and resources in order to help us do so. 

4. How are you funded?

Lodestar is primarily funded through donations. We rely on the generosity of individuals to keep our services available free of charge

5. How do I donate or apply for services?

Please visit our Donations Page or Services Page for more information

6. How long will it take my child to receive a dog once I apply?

Waiting times vary depending on the type of service you need for your child. We do try to keep our wait times short, but please contact Lodestar for more detailed information. 

7. Where are you located?

Lodestar's mailing address is located in Findlay, Ohio. However, all services are delivered to the client's home area.
