Pepper the Service Dog

$1,845 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 2 months
Cassidy is ready for her service dog from Brigadoon!  Meet Pepper!  Cassidy and Pepper have been matched and we will be ready to go to training in the fall, so he can come home with us.  Pepper will provide Cassidy much more independence than she has previously seen.  Right now Cassidy must have someone with her to push her wheelchair, open doors for her, pick things up off the floor when they fall, help steady her getting in and out of her car (yes she's ready for driver's ed!), and be overall more independent.  

She did all the work herself, from filling out the application, obtaining the letters needed, and even sending in the check for the deposit.  We need to raise a total of $15,000.  Here is how this will all break down in cost.  Pepper is coming fully trained, his cost is $10,000.  The remainder of the funds will be for the two week stay, plus food in Bellingham that will be required in the fall for both Cassidy and her mom Shannon, a harness (custom) around $500, and initial vet visit with our hometown vet, pet insurance premiums, new dog bed/toys, leash, and food for a month.  

Every bit helps!  31519100_1532211522346749_r.jpeg

We spied some pics of Pepper on the Brigadoon page and thought we should share.

We are so thankful for all the donations we’ve received so far! You might be asking what’s next while we wait for the fall and our team training class. Well we need to have a home visit from Brigadoon. This will happen soon. Some of this is timing on when Denise at Brigadoon can come down to see us. She may or may not bring Pepper to trial at home with us for a week. We would not be able to take him out or have him work but more to see how he does in our environment and with Cassidy.

After the home visit happens, then we wait for team training. This will be a two week class onsite in Bellingham at Brigadoon. We will be leaning all the commands, working with both Cassidy and Pepper to ensure everyone gets it.

In the meantime with some of the donation money we can start looking to purchase things. I started poking around at harnesses and wheelchair pulls. I’m learning so much! A whole new world is opening up for us. And especially for Cassidy.

We are thrilled that you donated and can’t wait to share more photos and videos soon. Thank you so much!
