Marina's Mom has fundraised for a Service dog from 4 paws for Ability in Ohio. We need to travel there for 12 days of training with her dog before we can bring it home and we are raising money for travel.

Marina is a 10 year old girl born in St. Petersburg, Russia. Her Mom adopted her at 14 months old but, the damage had already been done. She suffers from Fetal Alcohol Disorder, Attachment Disorder and Autism.

Marina is a loving, vibrant girl! She enjoys Art, Music, swimming & fishing! But the thing she loves most is DOGS!!! And she can't wait to have a puppy of her own!

Marina has always had extremely high energy levels! She also has always been very unaware of safety factors including staying with her Mom! She tends to get most distraught in the grocery store, the mall and the airport! 

Marina's service dog will be trained to track her if she gets away from Mom, calm her when she feels anxious or overwhelmed, and be her new best friend to teach her about relationships. Her pup will also remind her of her daily self care, and give her deep pressure to regulate herself. Her puppy will nudge her when she starts rocking to distract the behavior. 

Marina has picked the name Angel for her pup because she will love her & look after her just like Angels do.

Please help us bring home Marina's Angel by helping us pay for 12 days of training in Ohio! We need to fly round trip, stay 12 nights in a hotel and rent a car.

Thank you for your kind generosity!
