As parents we all have our dreams and exceptions of what our children should be like but have you ever thought about what it feels like to live as a child who people see as different but as a parent, you see this child as a special little person who is unique in his or her own way.

That is what I see when I look at Jonathan from the day he was born I became his advocate and his voice. Jonathan is an adorable five year old who has been recently diagnose with Autism he was already diagnose with partial complex seizure disorder, cerebral palsy, asthma, hearing loss, and a large delay in communication, cognitive skills, sensory issues, as well as his ability not to recognize pain. To take all of this and put it with a child who cannot express himself when he is upset is simply a volcano ready to explode because that is how intense his meltdowns are.

Many have asked well what a service dog can do to help him achieve and overcome these issues. A multiservice dog would be a complete blessing to Jonathan and me as well as offer him a variety of opportunities including reducing negative behaviors and tantrum outburst, decreasing sensory issues, increasing awareness of safety and the ability to calm him through the day. The dog itself is a great calming mechanism for Jonathan which will allow me to be able to take Jonathan to a public place and possible elevate the stress of dealing with meltdowns as well as a small child in wheelchair wondering off.

A nonprofit agency, 4 Paws for Ability partners with their clients and by doing so are able to place dogs without long waiting list. It will cost 4 Paws $22,000 to place a dog with Jonathan. We are committed to raising $13,000 in support of the 4 Paws mission and can reach our goal with your company help. We are asking that your company makes a donation to help improve the quality of Jonathan’s life so that he can continue to progress towards an independent
