Please help us raise money for our son's autism service dog. Our son Isaiah is 10 years old and he has been diagnosed with Autism, ADHD and Hashimoto's Disease.
We have been recently approved for a service dog. The final leg of this journey before getting the service dog is to raise the money to pay for its training and care. VIP (Very Important Pooches)Service Dog Foundation is based out of Oswego, Illinois. They are carefully and lovingly training a service dog to meet Isaiah's unique needs. They have had wonderful success placing dogs for autism.
An autism service dog will help Isaiah in so many ways. The most urgent skill his service dog will meet is the ability to track his scent, and hold and retrieve him when he wanders or bolts. His service dog will also help with his sleeping problems and with him waking up during the night. This dog would also help him depend less on technology (tablet, tv ect) to regulate himself. Isaiah also has sensory problems. A service dog will be able to help with self-soothing during meltdowns. Also help with his socialization by serving as a bridge to the community that ask about his dog.
Please help us brighten Isaiah's future. All funds are going towards acquiring a service dog. On behalf of Isaiah and our family, we thank you for any help you can provide.
