Sam has been diagnosed with Autism and Global Development Delay and needs your help in raising money to help get him a Smart Pup to keep him safe 24/7
Description
Sam is attracted to water and frequently wanders. He is also non-verbal and non-communicative and does not respond to any commands. He does not understand the dangers of stairs, fire, height, water, swings etc. Everyday items we use, are a hazard to Sam.
On the 11 July 2013, Sam wandered from home. The police, rescue helicopter, dog squad, family members and neighbours were out looking for him. Thankfully after 2 1/2 hour search, he was found. Sam's parents, Sandra and Phillip, also have the terrifying fear of the dam, which is less than 50 metres away from their family home. For the past 9 months, they have been looking for a more suitable home.
Other means of keeping Sam safe have been investigated into, but because of their location, it is not a viable solution.
A Smart Pup, is a special assistance dog. These dogs don't come cheap, they cost $25,000 each but Sandra and Phillip need to raise $10,000 to be given an Assistance Dog.
