Service Animal for my Father

Several years ago, my father was injured in a work accident that left him permanently disabled. He sustained a life altering spinal cord injury from a fall that nearly killed him. He has overcome so many obstacles that doctors told him he'd never be able to push through - which only gave him more motivation to get better. For years he had a strong support system and care at home that he needs to function daily. He no longer has the same local support system, and is in need of a trained service animal to help him with daily tasks so he can continue to live independently. Unfortunately, insurance doesn't help with this type of expense, and his financial situation will not allow for the total cost of an animal to help him. 

Please contribute to help us reach our goal of getting a trained service animal to help my dad continue to live independently.
