My journey as a civilian needing a PTSD service dog has resulted in the need to do two online fundraisers. The first was to cover the cost of being paired with the appropriate Service Dog in Training and the numerous costs involved in a year of training such a dog. The second was to get us to our trainer in Florida to take our public access test, work on some problem areas, and finish some task training.
I chose YouCaring for our second fundraiser because there were no fees involved. The site I used for our first fundraiser took a significant portion of the funds raised and I was looking to avoid that on our second fundraiser.
Thanks to your service and the kindness of others, Phoenix and I have just graduated as a fully certified service dog team with 1boy4change.org. Phoenix’s name was carefully chosen: now together we can rise from the ashes, and there’s no telling what growth and adventures await. Thank you!
