My name is Rebecca. I suffer from debilitating mental health issues. I believe a Service Dog would be in my best interest, but I can't do it alone. I need your help!

I have Panic Attacks, during which I helplessly watch as my body seizes up. I hyperventilate and, if I try to breathe properly, hypoventilate. I'm alone often and having an attack by myself with no one to help me is terrifying. I need someone to help me out of these situations. A Service Dog is trained to do Deep Pressure Therapy- in my case, laying on my chest to keep it from escalating and bring me back out of it. (As calming as a bear hug after a good cry.) A Panic Attack can leave me wiped out for days- tired, depressed, and drained. I also have an increased chance of having another attack.

I have anxiety and just about any thing can set me off. Some times even I don't know why I'm stressed out. The more stressed I become, the more likely I am to have a Panic Attack. A Service Dog can alert me when I begin to stress- something that's not always obvious to me- and help me calm down.

My husband and I long for the peace of mind that a Service Dog will bring. The dog will be there with me through thick and thin whether or not any one else is available. But we can't do this alone. We need your help.

We need a minimum of $5000 for dog, fence, and training. We could definitely use more for supplies, vetting, and traveling expenses- to get the dog, go to the trainer's, etc. Any amount, small or large, is greatly appreciated and will be used for the Service Dog. Thank you for your assistance!
