Why Stirling needs your help.
Stirling is an eight year old boy who is struggling with Autism. This affects every aspect of his life. A Smart Pup has been recommended as the best way forward to overcome the problems associated with his condition.
What can a Smart Pup do?
Smart Pups are trained to suit each individual. In Stirlings' case, the pup will reduce his anxiety levels and stop him running into traffic. The Smart Pup can also distract him when he starts to get frustrated and if necessary, can help to find him if he goes missing.
What can you do?
It costs $25,000 to purchase, raise and train a Smart Pup. Of that, Stirling needs to raise $20,000. A donation of any amount can help hugely toward this goal. If you are unable to help directly, you can still help by sharing this page with your friends and family.
Smart Pups Assistance Dogs for Special Needs Children Inc have been actively working toward helping children with special needs for 4 years.
They have concentrated on Autism Assistance Dogs, Seizure Response Dogs and Mobility Assistance Dogs.
They will train a pup to help Stirling in the areas that he needs support, to help him to grow into a calm, confident young man.
