Service dogs for children in need

For Children in Need


I personally know from experience, that service dogs for children with specific needs WORKS. Whether it be a dog for seizures, autism, blindness, mobility, etc.... there is a dog and a service for every affliction. What there isn't available.... funding. These animals are typically bred for a specific function, and take approximately one year of specialized training to function in the capacity necessary for each person in need. These dogs, and associated training, vet bills, grooming, food, kennels, etc...typically exceed $25,000. When we started this, before the news stations got involved, we knew there was a need, but, after seeing the number of family applications and requests for children in need, we decided to put a drive together to help these kids. The videos will show you the impact on the families that have already received service dogs...Every dollar donated will help another child move closer to the assistance they need.

I thought a $10 drive would be something everyone could afford. If we reach 5000 people through networking, and asking YOU to forward this link to everyone you know.... and 1/2 of the people who see this donate $10 each... we will reach our goal of $25K, and fund another dog for a child in need. Of course, if you can donate more than $10 - we can reach our goals quicker.

Thank you for taking time to get involved, and know your donation helps a child in need.
