Welcome to Dorothy's CANINE COMPANIONS for INDEPENDENCE DogFest Fundraising Page 2019
Hello Again Family and Friends,
TANVEER my "Successor Dog" to Sonoma, who as you may know passed away earlier this year, and I have been forming a "Team" for about 6 weeks now. I had Sonoma by my side every hour of every day for 10 years helping me be more independent and providing immeasurable love and support whenever I needed it. He made a HUGE difference in my life and Tanveer is following in his paw-steps very well !! Tanveer is 2 years 5 months old and an energetic sweetheart who is already adept at getting all the stuff I drop and giving it back to me as well as closing doors behind us, and moving stuff in front of us out of the way so my power chair and I can get through! He and I are rapidly forming that special bond that is the trademark of an exceptional Service Dog.
Although I hate asking people for money I'm again participating in DogFest as a way to raise money for Canine Companions for Independence and their mission to provide expertly-trained assistance dogs to adults, children and veterans with many different types of disabilities FREE of charge. It costs $50,000.00 or more to train each of these dogs - anything you can give to provide more "Helper Dogs" as kids typically say, and decrease the typical wait time of 2 years will truly be appreciated by more people than you can imagine.
Please support Canine Companions for Independence by making an Extra Large, Medium, or Small donation (every dollar helps!) in my name to help me raise as much money as possible.this year to support this incredible non-profit organization. (If together we can raise $10,000.00 we've done a really good thing AND I get to name a puppy as my reward!!)
Thank you all in advance
Dorothy and Successor Service Dog, Tanveer
