Make it Pawsible to Get Ella a Fur-ever Friend!
Ella is our wondrous 7-year-old daughter with a sensitive soul.
Gifted with creativity and musical talent, if she's not crafting and creating projects, you can find her singing until her heart's content. She brightens our home with beautiful songs and can tell you all about the musicians she loves.
Ella is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Emotional dysregulation, inflexible thinking, social skills deficiencies, and anxiety make everyday activities like going on playdates or a simple run to the grocery store near impossible for Ella and her family.
Ella is anxiously waiting to be matched to her service dog, who will be specifically trained to assist her by:
● Assisting with social interactions and communication
● Helping transition between environments and activities
● Redirecting from undesirable and maladaptive behaviors
● Providing deep pressure support and tactile sensory input
● Giving comfort and grounding support during meltdowns
● Visually reminding others to be patient and kind
● Being her loyal and constant friend

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.
