Service Dog for June!



This is Penny, our 1-year-old Australian Shepherd. We got her for our daughter, June, with the hope that she could be trained to be June's service dog. When June was just 4 months old, she started having recurring seizures. She was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease called tuberous sclerosis and still suffers from really debilitating seizures, almost on a daily basis. We have hope that June may be able to have brain surgery in the future to help control her seizures, but in the mean time, we need help. Penny is a part of our family and contributes so much to helping June deal with the difficulties she faces. Now that June is 3 years old and will be starting a special education program in the coming weeks, we want Penny to be able to stay with June at all times and in all places. This requires that Penny be a service animal. We have found a great facility and team of people who are willing to work with us to train Penny to detect June's seizures, give her comfort and stability during a seizure, help June with daily activities such as navigating stairs and curbs, and provide companionship in general. The cost to train Penny is high and with all of June's medical bills and other needs, we need help to make this happen. We so appreciate any little bit you can give! We have been blessed with June, who is a brave and happy little girl. She teaches us so much about living life to the fullest and finding joy in small things. We just want to help her and give her all the opportunities we can. Please help us get Penny trained to be a service dog for June!
