PAD Macchiato Maximus, the Italian Spinone, was donated to our program at 8 weeks of age.

Macchiato has done wonderful in training for 1 year, and is matched with Gail Zoccola-Diem.  He is training to do hearing work and light mobility to assist her with her hearing loss, oesteoarthritis and fibromyalgia.  His tasks will include alerting to her name being called, an alarm going off, retrieving dropped items and light forward momentum when walking long distances.

Tragically, Macchiato was diagnosed with Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD) and requires immediate orthopedic surgery on his right shoulder.  This surgery and rehabilitiation will cost us anywhere from $1,500 to $2,500.

Palmyra Animal Clinic has assured us that once recovered, Macchiato will be able to complete training and work a wonderful life as a loved assistance dog.

Please help us raise the money to give Macchiato his life and career back!
