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


 Paws for Ava

This is my donor page to support National Service Dogs because I have been selected to receive a dog in the coming year! Only 15 recipients are chosen across Canada yearly so I feel very lucky! I don’t have a lot of dogs in my world which makes this even more exciting and I’m hoping we can walk together in the park or on the beach, sleep together and just lean on each other as we develop our friendship. I don't even know my dog's name yet but I am already so proud that he/she is a working animal and I’m sure we will love each other! I am very lucky that my sister also loves dogs, so I think she can teach me, play with me more and we will have something new in common. Did you know that there are working dogs for kids with autism? Each dog is sponsored through a lot of help from volunteers who raise the puppies for NSD until their advanced training begins at 18 months. From there, some really special people teach the dogs how to support kids like me! It is a privilege to get selected when there are so very few dogs that are trained this way. It is a very exciting time for us all as we start thinking through a new addition to our family, but with that addition comes many associated costs. I want to make this transition as easy for my family as I can and am asking you for your help. Your donation will go towards the NSD program and helping my young pup become the service dog of my dreams!

Please support me, my family, my new dog and NSD! Don't just do it for me, but for every kid out there who can use the support and companionship of a service dog.

Thank you for all your love and encouragement over the years – there’s nowhere to go but up!

 Love, Ava
