Our MissionCanine Companions for Independence

Sylvia with Service Dog Nicola

Throughout her life, Sylvia, who has muscular dystrophy, has relied on her parents to assist her with day-to-day tasks. Even then, Sylvia has never let her disability put a limit on her success.

Last year, Sylvia’s life took an exciting turn when she was admitted to Stanford University. Although an incredible opportunity, the idea of living away from home seemed impossible at the time due to her reliance on others for help.

Everything changed when Sylvia was matched with Service Dog Nicola. Sylvia is now attending Stanford with her new service dog by her side, and the pair even live in the on-campus dormitories. Service Dog Nicola is expertly trained in over 40 commands to assist Sylvia by opening doors, picking up dropped items and more tasks to help enhance her independence.

Sylvia shares, “Nicola has given me a sense of security and independence that I’ve never felt before.”

Join Sylvia and hear her story at this year’s Sit. Stay. Sparkle. event!
