Jeffrey Zwearcan

From: Dracut, MA
Program: Service Dog
Minimum Goal: $8,000 | Amount Raised:$9,474

They call me Jeff, and my current service dog is “The Dude.” We have just retired after thirty-five years of working for the State of Massachusetts. At fifteen years of age, Dude is no longer able to perform many helpful tasks which have helped me to maintain my independence, as I have been confined to a wheelchair for some time. With the assistance and support of my circle of friends, my goal is to raise not only enough money to provide me with a new service dog through the NEADS organization, but to be able to pay it forward to others who may not have the ability to fundraise.

*NEADS clients pledge to raise a minimum of $8,000 for the organization, thus allowing us to fulfill our mission of placing Service Dogs with individuals who benefit from them the most.  Each donation ensures that NEADS will continue to change lives with our World Class Service Dogs.
