Therapy Dog For Sebastian

Hello, we are fundraising to get a trained therapy dog for Sebastian.

Sebastian is on the autism spectrum and has sensory processing disorder (SPD). This means that day to day life is a real struggle for him as he tries to process the world around him. Sebastian's sensory overloads get too much for him and he runs away. Due to his autism he has no danger awareness which means it is very difficult to keep Sebastian safe when out in public.

Some of the things the dog would be trained to do is, provide deep pressure therapy, sleep settling, intervening Sebastian's sensory overloads and keeping him safe when out in public. Sebastian struggles to make friends, so the dog would offer him companionship, as well as support and comfort he will trust. 
To have this dog would be absolutely life changing for Sebastian.

The initial cost is £2000 and £250 each month for 2 years whilst the dog receives intensive training, specifically for Sebastian's needs.

Even with all the difficulties Sebastian faces each day, he is a lovely 5 year old boy that has an absolute love of nature. If you could help us in anyway we would be extremely grateful, even just a like or share on Facebook will help us reach our goal of giving Sebastian a happier life and future.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
