Your contribution will improve the life of an individual with a disability and also save the life of a shelter dog!
The bond between dog and owner is an unmistakable one. The bond between an individual with a disability and an assistance dog goes even deeper than that. Unfortunately, many people who could benefit from a service or therapy animal do not have access to one. myK9companion seeks to change that.
What Our Dogs Can Do
- myK9companion connects my child with autism to the world around him
- myK9companion helps me with my mobility issues
- myK9companion interrupts my negative and anxious behaviors
- myK9companion finds me if I wander off from my parents
- myK9companion keeps me safe in public
- myK9companion helps me improve my social interaction
- myK9companion is a life-saver!
What We Need
Raising and training assistance dogs can get quite expensive. Our expenses include medical, training, food and supplies, transportation, program management, and insurance. All funds received will go toward our training and placement programs. Our goal is to raise $75,000 and place 5 service dogs by Spring of 2016.
myK9companion was founded in 2015 by Brett Blevins through his work in Applied Behavior Analysis. His work in ABA allowed him to see first hand the benefits that therapy dogs provided his clients with autism. Brett believes that individuals with disabilities can greatly benefit from owning a service or therapy dog. It is his goal to help qualified families find a companion for life.
