Ten different families. Each with a child on the autism spectrum. Each searching for a way to give their child a little more stability, a little more normalcy in their life. Reaching out for help in the form of an autism service dog.
The average cost of a service dog is upwards of $20,000 with most service dog organizations asking for a donation of between $13,000 and $15,000 prior to placement on their wait list. Which is why the total cost quoted by Siberian Snow Babies’ Animals for Autism program of $5000 was so remarkable. In fact, it seems to have had the effect that it masked so many other warning signs.
Please read the following stories and pass them around. They deserve as much exposure as possible.
