We are excited to continue our annual fundraising auction and dinner, "Paws for Freedom: Changing Lives Four Paws at a Time" event. This will be a wonderful evening of dining and drinking, auctioning, and engaging with the people and dogs of JLAD. All proceeds will directly aid waiting clients in receiving a Joys of Living assistance dog to achieve a life of greater freedom and independence.

The Joys of Living Assistance Dogs trains highly skilled service dogs to assist in daily activities for persons with life-limiting physical disabilities, as well as veterans with PTSD. Each dog we place undergoes our rigorous two-year training program, at the cost of $25,000. Because of generous donations from supporters like you we continue to fulfill our mission.

It has come to our attention that some clients are getting errors when attempting to checkout. The error message is typically the one shown below:

HTTP Status 405 - Request method 'POST' not supported

This error message is coming from the PayPal server. This error has been resulting from old, corrupted PayPal cookies on the user's computer and is probably due to changes at PayPal since the user last visited PayPal. The error appears to be localized to the web browser that has the outdated cookies.

The good news is - there is a simple fix.

For a quick fix, if possible, try a different browser on your computer. If the alternative browser that you have available does not also have corrupted PayPal cookies, it should work. This will not prevent you from encountering this error again in the future on our website or a different website.

For a permanent fix, you simply need to clear the corrupted web browser cookies and the issue will be resolved. These are directions for the current versions of the most comon browsers. Your browser instructions may differ.
