My son, Kaleb, has autism and received a service dog from ASDA and we have never looked back. I am a veterinarian and I know the healing power that animals can offer people. Chewey is such a smart and beautiful dog. He works very hard taking care of Kaleb and keeping him safe. ASDA has become a part of my family and made us whole again. This is a wonderful organization and needs donations to be able to continue helping families like ours.

Our grandson Kaleb was diagnosed with autism at the age of two. Life as we all knew it changed with that diagnosis. Kaleb was unable to face life situations and even the smallest issue could become a nightmare. That was before "Chewey " came into Kaleb's life and the world became a less frightening place. Chewey is a yellow Lab that was trained by ASDA and has now become Kaleb's best friend and lifeline. This animal is a miracle and it is all because of ASDA and the work they do for autistic children. These dogs make life situations possible again for the children and their families. We can not begin to express our gratitude for what Chewey has done for Kaleb and our entire family.
