Aiden's North Star Assistance Dog

Aiden has been selected to be partnered with a well bred and carefully socialized North Star dog to work with him to help regulate his emotions and help with sensory issues, such as applying deep pressure for stress relief on cue. The bond between North Star dogs and the children they serve is simple but powerful, and research backs the power of an intelligently partnered canine companion for a child. We want a well bred and raised North Star dog for Aiden to work with as well as unwind with, to surround him with unconditional love and warmth. 

As soon as we raise $5,000, which is less than half of true cost of this partnership, we will be placed on the waiting list for our North Star pup, and so we thank you for your support of our fundraiser!
