Alis Service Dog

Hello, My name is Ali Temple, and for those who don’t know I have Juvenile Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, POTS and pain processing disorder. I started showing signs of JIA about 10 years ago, and it’s started to get worse as I’ve gotten older. Thankfully I have had the amazing support of my family, but as I’m starting to get ready to move out there is a need for me to be more independent. After a talk with my doctor and family we all feel as a service dog would help me live more independently. This dog would be able to help me retrieve things I could not, help me with counterbalance as I do not have the best balance and could me when if I were to pass out. Service dogs are not covered by my insurance and tend to be expensive due to the training process. Any assistance you would be willing to offer me in this endeavor would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and possibly help out. Service dogs cost anywhere from $6000 and up, so every little bit helps
