Service Dog for Caleb Norling

Family and Friends,

Caleb has been selected to receive a Service Dog! K9Navigators  has awarded a dog, and begun training, that Caleb will get to meet and bond with sometime in the next 4-6 months. We are so excited for this huge opportunity as it will allow Caleb to be RID OF HIS WALKER ONCE AND FOR ALL!

Caleb's life will be forever changed as he will have a helper, a best friend, and someone to "do life with". His dog will allow him to move around the house, provide safety and protect him in public, help him live an independant life, enable to go up and down stairs, get in and out of vehicles, and give him a quality of life that has thus far been a bit hindered by his walker.  

So many of you have asked over the years how you might be able to be involved in Caleb's life in a tangible way. Well, here is your opportunity! 

The cost of Caleb's Dog will be appox $8,000 and has been offered to be fully covered by K9 Navigators. However, we feel compelled to raise the money so that someone else might be able to have a dog fully paid for. 

So here is our request: We are trying to raise a minimum of $8500, (to cover the cost of his dog, and the small percentage that GoFundMe takes).  Anything over our goal of $8500 will go into an account that will ONLY  go towards the life long care of Caleb's Service Dog (food, vet visits, etc). 

We will update this page with pictures and info as the story unfolds!!

K9 Navigators also provides assistance dogs to active duty and retired military personnel, first-responders including fire, police, emergency personnel and their families injured while honorably serving our country.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions!

Thank you for considering supporting Caleb's next great life goal!

Troy, Liz, and of course, Caleb Norling
