Herferville Hosts Guide Dog Benefit Raffle

Great Group Supporting A Great Cause

The Instagram group ashholecigarclubohio, which has some familiar faces like Mr. Luke Risner and the Herfers put together a benefit raffle for Southeastern Guide Dogs. An amazing group that raises and trains service dogs for blind people, Veterans who require a service animal, and also for people with disabilities.

As we mentioned in our news letter, it takes two years to train these dogs and the cost is astounding. $45,000 to $60,000 per animal. The training that goes into it is only a part of the cost. When you consider selective breeding programs, veterinary care, boarding, specialized intensive training etc. you can see how the costs add up quick.


The raffle will be hosted by Hugh and Harriet Herfer on their YouTube channel Herferville.

The rules and all the particulars can be found on their channel. You can also check in with Like Risner the Cincinnati Piper who will also be putting out information on the benefit.

A quick guide is printed here, but we urge you to visit the above two channels to get the latest information.

Raffle is Open To US Residents ONLY.
