Celebrating 20 years of expanding potential through the life-changing power of Certified Service Dogs.

Alex and NSD Icon

Alex in the driver's seat.  Alex loves riding on OC Transpo. 

Alex is a delightful 12 year old who is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Alex has limited verbal speech that makes it difficult for him to communicate.

We were delighted to announce that Alex received his National Service Dog, Icon, in April, 2017.! Icon will  make a great difference in Alex’s life in many ways.

Right now we can see that Alex is lonely. It’s hard for people to know how to engage with him. Icon will be a natural bridge for conversation as well as providing companionship.

Alex loves to go on long walks. Unfortunately, his family doesn’t always have the time or energy to go with him. Due to his limited understanding of personal safety and his tendency to wander away in the blink of an eye, he must be accompanied at all times. Icon can go with him, allowing him more independence while keeping him safe.

Icon will provide a visual cue to others that Alex has special needs instantly allowing for more understanding and awareness.

Please help by donating whatever you can for Alex and his new best friend.

Thank you for your generous support and for making such a difference in Alex’s life.
