ECAD, Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities
October 23, 2012

My name is Donna and I was born with Muscular Dystrophy. I am in a wheelchair and went to ECAD in 2004 to receive a service dog. I have "Haley" since Dec 2004. She is a wonderful Golden Retriever who has changed my life in so many ways. She picks up things I drop, helps open doors, and much more.

ECAD, Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities
September 6, 2010

My name is Donna Burke and I was born with Muscular Dystrophy. I am confined to a wheelchair since the age of 4 (I am 44 now). In Dec 2004 I was accepted into ECAD'S "Boot Camp" to receive a Service dog. I attended classes for 2 weeks and learned all the commands that the dogs already knew. I was placed with "Haley" who at the time was almost 3 yrs old. We had a fast bond which is very important for a service dog team. We worked very well together and I got to go home with her after passing all our tests. Haley has been a blessing to me in many ways. She helps pick up items I drop, open the fridge, turn on/off lights, and open doors. She also gave me the motivation to lose about 100 lbs to be able to take care of her in the way she deserves. ECAD is a wonderful program that is helping so many people being independant! Donna Burke
