I am Teresa & I have been diagnosed with PTSD, which have left me disabled & panicked in busy places like grocery stores, airports, doctors etc. I am asking for funds to buy a Newfiedoodle puppy to train as a PTSD service dog through a nonprofit.

Hi Friends,

I am Teresa Hayes, 62 yrs. old with 2 psychiatric panic disorders and acute generalized anxiety disorder, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Costochondritis,  Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, tinnitus, balance issues, etc. for at least 13 years.  I cannot afford to buy a PTSD dog that has been raised, trained, and certified as they cost $25,000-$30,000.  I am on Social Security Disability with a Christian medishare program which reimburses for some of my medical bills, but none of my psychiatrist. I pay for medicine. I am a civilian not a veteran . I find it more difficult each day I need to leave my home for groceries or even my psychiatrist's office.  My doctor will prescribe a PTSD service dog for me and I have found a breed, Newfiedoodle puppy, with the right characteristics.  Cost of this dog & airfare to pick it up is $2000.

It will take approximately 1 1/2 yrs. to complete this training so the dog is certified nationally as a PTSD service dog and will accompany  me everywhere I go.  I am committed to training and loving a dog who can enable me to lead a more normal life by sensing when I am agitated to soothe me or get between me and the stressor or just lead me out of the area that is causing  me stress.  This would change my life enormously.  

I truly thank you for anything you can give.  I pray God's blessings on each who read this, my story.
