GIFT OF SUNSHINE INC
September 7, 2013

My service dog Togo became ill with a very serious illness. With very limited resources, I was scared about not only his prognosis, but how I was going to get him the care he so desperately needed. Then I was referred to the Gandalf Fund, "Gift of Sunshine." After a quick application process, I was approved to have Togo's care covered for a very generous amount. It has been an extremely stressful time, with lots of ups and downs and last minute medical changes. This organization and its founder Julie have been right by my side through it all. No matter what the need, they met it. Togo is on the road to recovery now. The doctors have all been wonderful, but it wouldn't have happened without the wonderful support of the Gift of Sunshine. They lifted a huge financial burden off of me so I could focus on the care of my boy. I can't thank them enough.

SUMMIT ASSISTANCE DOGS
October 26, 2012

As I write this review, my service dog Togo is cuddled up next to me on the bed. There is no greater healing than this sensation of Togo gently breathing, with his body snug against my leg. Togo and I just completed our training together this month. There truly are no words to properly express my new life with Togo. Summit Assistance Dogs does so much more than matching people with their forever companion, they bring unconditional love into people's lives. When I applied for a service dog with Summitt Assistance Dogs, I had just lost my previous dog to cancer. They were so determined to find me a match to ensure my quality of life did not continue to decline. The expertise and dedication of the staff and trainers to find my match was absolutely incredible. After meeting Togo for the first time, I fell absolutely in love. Thankfully, Togo chose me as well. The training Togo and I went through was extensive and thorough. Ensuring that not only would I be competent in handling Togo, but that our bond together was complete. The staff and trainers did everything possible to work with my disabilities and supported me in every aspect of the application, matching and training process. I feel as if I've made life-long friends. It's not often that people can say they have changed a life. Well, the people of Summit Assistance Dogs get to go home every night and know that they have changed so many lives and continue to do so. It's obvious that everyone at Summit is there because they have a passion for what they do. I will be forever greatful to this amazing organization and the people who made sure that my life will be forever enriched by the skills and love of my boy Togo.
