We were so excited to have Lauren reach out to us and interview Liam about what he is doing and help get the word out about childhood PTSD.
We need YOUR help finding foster homes for our Spyder dogs!!! What does it mean to foster a "Spyder" dog, it means you are saving two lives at once. We rescue puppies from high kill shelters and train them for children with PTSD. We do this by placing them with people like YOU. Even if you have no training experience, or info about what childhood PTSD is, but want to help we want YOU. It doesn't matter where you live, whether your a stay at home parent, on some disability, or work. All the expenses are covered, from training to all the gear you will need. Even if you are unable to foster, we are building a "Web of Networkers" across the country to help spread the word.
So this morning on my way to class I got a phone call from Mr Patrick at NJ 101.5 because he wanted to do a short piece about me and the foundation. I was really nervous when I got up this morning, as I don't think I'm really good at talking with people on the phone - I'm so much better in person (what's up with that anyways? Add technology and you'd THINK it would be easier! ANYWAYS....
Please help us in welcoming Thoth. He was pulled today from a high kill shelter in Texas from the euthanasia list. He is 8 weeks old and a bundle of puppy adorableness. All was not so rosy for poor Thoth in his short life - he was found in a box by the side of a rural road and brought to the shelter a few days ago. The sign on his box simply said "FREE." Lucky for little Thoth, though, he didn't perish out there in the summer heat though he is emaciated. When we saw his picture we just had a feeling he may be a good fit for our service dog training program and through the help of some absolutely AMAZING people (Pam and Teresa you know who you are) we were able to coordinate a local foster and also transport up to the Northeast once his quarantine period is up later in July.
