Supporting: Good Dog! Family Scholarship Fund for Good Dog! Service Canines


Make it Pawsible for Stella to Shine with a Better Quality of Life!

Stella lives in Massachusetts with her doting family, who's always cheering on their little star.

Her parents say that whether she's blissfully splashing waves in the pool or gleefully gliding down the playground slide, their 5-year-old's cheerful disposition kindles the same happy, loving spirit in everyone around her.

Stella has Autism and DDX3X Syndrome.

The severity of her conditions has delayed all aspects of her development. Everyday tasks like getting dressed are difficult and time-consuming. She becomes overwhelmingly frustrated when she can communicate her basic needs, sensory sensitivities, or understanding of social cues when interacting with her peers.

Stella's family has partnered with Good Dog to provide her with a faithful friend to improve her quality of life. She is waiting to be matched to her service dog, who will be trained to help her by:

●  Assisting with social interactions
●  Encouraging verbal communication
Alleviating anxiety and overstimulation
●  Redirecting undesirable behaviors
●  Helping with daily living activities 
●  Visually reminding others to be patient and kind
●  Providing unconditional love, comfort, & acceptance for exactly who she is

Remember to get your company's support as your donation applies to many corporate programs!

Good Dog! invests an average of $32,000 to raise, care and train each dog as well as educate and support each family. Currently, we add 8-10 new teams to the Good Dog! Family each year in addition to supporting our active Good Dog! Teams. That means we must raise up to $320,000 annually. To help us offset these costs, our families agree to raise a minimum of $16,000 each. Many families choose to fundraise this amount with the help of our resources and fundraising coach. Good Dog! provides families in need with scholarships to cover the remaining costs of their service dog program.

Your tax-deductible gift to the Good Dog! Family Scholarship Fund helps sustain our programs and makes a direct impact on a family by providing a better quality of life for their child with a disability.

All gifts are received with the greatest of gratitude from us all.
