Hi Everyone! My name is Owen and I need a service dog. If I had a dog I would be able to be more independent and I could do things that a lot of other 10 year olds can do. Plus ... I would feel secure and it might help with my terrible nightmares! More ...

Hi Everyone! My name is Owen and I am asking for your help. There are so many reasons why I am asking for a service dog in my life. I want to be able to join in and express myself, but sometimes it just isn't possible. My friends at school invite me to do things but my fear and anxiety make me afraid. Sometimes I just need a little comfort to feel confident in a crowd. Have you ever had the feeling that you just can't do this? Welcome to how day to day life is, always half way there. I know I can be so much braver and the world will know how smart I am if there was a little help. To me, I am not judged by animals. They love you for who you are, what you teach them, and are loyal forever. My mom and dad are like that too! They do all that the doctors say and what is in their hearts to make it right. Since I am an animal lover, a service dog was brought up. I now know that I am responsible enough to do my part to help a dog that has been chosen to help me! Your donation in any amount for this special dog will help me towards activities kids my age enjoy that I want to, but can't do alone. It will allow my family to be able go to a restaurant and the noise or activity will not be such a concern or go visit family in another state. A little help for a lot of courage will make a huge difference. Thank you for your consideration, Owen Suozzo and Family
