My name is Ryan and I really love animals. Since I was born eight years ago, I have loved and loved our kitty. We go to sleep each night together! Unfortunately, our kitty can’t go places on a leash or play outside with me. My family told me about NEADS Social Dogs and I got really excited about the possibility of a constant companion. Now I can’t believe I’ve been accepted for a social service dog! In my picture, you can see I am already sleeping with my stuffed, Labrador NEADS service dog.
I struggle daily to regulate my emotions and keep a positive outlook on life. I am a very sensitive boy who needs a lot of reassurance that things are going to be okay. The demands of first grade were tough on me. I find reading, writing, and schedule changes very challenging. My frustration sometimes overwhelms me. When I get home, I need to unwind and get all my energy out. I look forward to spending the afternoons playing catch and hide and seek with my NEADS dog! I am also excited to have my dog sleep next to me to help with my night time worries. I love to cuddle with our kitty and my stuffed animals so I can’t wait to cuddle with my dog. I know this dog will make a huge difference in my life. I look forward to welcoming and caring for our newest family member!
NEADS is an amazing non-profit organization (Tax ID # 23-7281887) that spends over $42,000 to train each service dog. Would you consider making a tax-deductible donation to NEADS in my name to help NEADS cover the cost of my service dog? I would greatly appreciate your support for a Service Dog that would provide a calm presence in my life. Any gift will be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your help.
