Raising funds through donations to help support the purchase of a Service or Therapy Dog for those suffering from physical or mental handicaps incapable of waiting on a list for 5-6 years with anticipation while the list dwindles down to them.
"I don’t want a pitty party and I’m not looking forward to have to explain why I have a therapy dog with me 24/7/365 but, I want to be able to live a “normal” life. Everyone has fears, but to have a disorder that when your put in a situation where you have a flashback, and relive the day where you thought you were going to be killed like a video in your brain – isn’t 'normal' ". - Nicole --Founder This was the comment made by founder Nicole during a conversation with friends about needing a Therapy dog and not having the money, She knew she wasn't the only out there and decided right then and there that she wouldn't stop at just herself. Nicole suffers from PTSD and after 3 luxury ambulance rides to the closest ER because her panic attacks were so bad even on medication, she wasn't able to breath, it was suggested that she get a Therapy Dog.
While Nicole is waiting for Gulliver to complete his training so she can go get him, she isn't stopping. She have more passion than ever, to continue on to help those that need it. We have two more people who can benefit from the abilities of a service dogs but sadly aren't able to produce the kind of money it costs to obtain one without putting your name at the bottom of a list and waiting for 5-6 years.
Our goal?? To be able to assist these families with the cost of obtaining a Service dog within the next year. Each dog goes through one month of basic obedience, one month of advanced obedience. The canine is then tested upon passing recieves his or her lifetime CGC (Canine Good Citizen) award as well as the approval to go forth with becoming a Service or Therapy dog. He or She then goes through four months of intense extensive training tailored to the recipients disability and needs. That leaves us with six months!! We would love it if every person that viewed this page would donate either $5 or $10. Its a small amount that can quickly add up and we can get these two families the extra help they so despirately need!!
