Coins for Canines - Assistant Dogs

Hi, my name is Lindsey and I have an amazing service dog named Blaze.

Four years ago, I met my best friend and service dog in Milton, GA where I traveled to Canine Assistants to get my dog. There was no cost to me or my family to go to Milton for the two weeks of training. My dog was sponsored by a group from Long Island who raised enough money to cover all of the expenses.

Blaze gives me the security and support I need to make every day awesome and has become my best friend! I can't imagine my life without her. We even got our picture on a Canine Assistants promotional video.

Now, I want to pay it forward by teaming up with the help of Mickey's Kids Charitable Foundation. I have set a goal here in Jefferson Township, where I go to middle school, to raise $5,000. When we meet our goal, we will combine our monies along with Mickey's Kids Foundation's $20,000 to place a service dog here in Northern New Jersey.

Blaze and I would really appreciate it if you can help us reach our goal to help place a service dog with another disabled child right here in Northern New Jersey. Please donate here today, no amount is too small.

Blaze and I thank you for any help you are able to give.
