Just got notice that I'm getting an apartment of my own; the last of the PSD paperwork has gone through from my doctors... I'm very excited, and once again want to thank everyone who has helped me so far!

Thinking of getting a retired racing greyhound as the service beastie :) Calibrating my savings goals for this option. Please do not send money at this time (But well-wishes are accepted ;) )

Last update didn't go through :P POO! Anyhow, I'm on a waiting list for my own apartment, and once I'm in, and settled, I can get my ESA/PSD. :D I've also been helping out at the local humane society, and volunteering with their dogs that are bigger, and older, and harder to place than the usual. Not taking any of them home, but doing my best to make sure that they get to feel loved and 'special', too, and it's fun learning their different personalities.

I’m saving up for a Psychiatric Service Dog. A Psychiatric Service Dog is a dog that is specially trained to help a person deal with severe mental illness; allowing the person to function in a more normal fashion, and allow them to lead a fuller life by performing special tasks that can help manage disability caused by the illness itself, and the medicine required to treat it.

A fully trained service dog can cost $30,000. I’m asking for help in raising $2,000, which will pay for the puppy, and vet bills, and a few weeks off work to help bond with the puppy, as proper bonding and working together are part of what can make a good service dog and handler team. I will be training the puppy myself, following IAADP and ADI guidelines, as part of my therapy and hopefully  as a stepping-stone to becoming a trainer for others. 

*I am not a non-profit/charity - money donated here counts as a gift, and is not tax deductible.
