Titan Reading with Student

We are looking for a building or a farm where we can train therapy dogs, reading assistance dogs, and service dogs. We are looking for a free-standing building with HVAC in Raleigh, NC & Burlington or Greensboro, NC with 0.5-5 acres of "level/gently rolling" lawn. We need the use of this building to be donated for at least the 1st year. The location needs to be close to main highways for easy acces for people traveling from all areas of NC.

We were training in the gym at Dorothea Dix Hospital until the state closed the facility. Our training classes were our major source of income so it is imperative we find a new training facility soon.
