Did you know:  

According to the NCADV, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime.

 

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, but when October ends the violence does not, and even after they escape the violence, these families still need our help.

“The effects of domestic violence reach beyond the family – victims are less able to perform in a school setting, the work place, and in normal adult relationships.” - St Jude House 
This is why SDWR is raising funds to support victims who have escaped domestic violence in obtaining a service dog for themselves and/or their loved ones. 
SDWR has been helping families and individuals suffering with invisible disabilities for nearly 10 years now, and has hundreds of dogs placed. SDWR then continues to travel to each family/dog placement to follow up with training for a 12-18 month period. Fortunately, SDWR has been supported by an amazing community made up of families seeking service dogs, families placed with service dogs, and those who believe in our mission. 
We are reaching out to our supporters to help us. All gifts are welcome, and will go to help SDWR with the cost of raising, placing & training Service Dogs with families that are victims of domestic violence.
Some employers will contribute matching gifts, so be sure to ask your employer if they will match yours!
