Mason is a 9 year old boy who has been diagnosed with high functioning autism, bi polar, ODD, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, general anxiety, anxiety unspecified and disruptive mood dysfunctional disorder. Since the start of 2017 Mason has been inpatient 3 times this year. Due to his disorders he has not been able to be a typical 9 year old boy. We do not leave the house much other than for school and his appointments. With Mason having a service dog it is will give him the ability to be able to leave the house and be more social. The service dog will be able to alert to masons behavior and help before a meltdown starts or help during a meltdown to help Mason stay safe. We are starting a fundraiser for Mason so he can get a service dog that he is in need of. Mason will be able to take the dog to school and help him through the day at school as well. Mason will be able to create abond like no other with his service dog. I have talked with Mason about his service dog and his face just lit up. Mason was so excited. All donations are tax deductible and are very much appreciated.

We promote a high level of interaction between the dog, the recipient family and our training staff to create an environment of success. Unlike other service dog programs, SDWR takes
the next step in providing a solid base between a service dog and the recipient.
