Having a service dog can make all the difference in a life - allowing them to live with more independence and freedom!
You can help a person: No longer worry about not hearing the fire alarm in the middle of the night (their dog will alert them!), or a child who's worried about not being able to hear if there is a monster under the bed! (Riley's dog would "deafinitely" let her know!) or being terrified that a loved one would sleep through a drop in blood sugar - please dontate today!
