ASSISTANCE DOGS OF AMERICA INC
April 15, 2011

At the age of 45, I was bordering on becoming a recluse due to my disability. In 2005, after partnering with Brooke, a now 8 year old Black Lab we have travelled the world together, literally! She is my right leg, ankle and foot which do not bend, she is my back which is painful to bend, she is my balance which is non-existent without her, she is my helper, friend and companion. No longer do I have fears of going to the grocery store, or travelling alone to another city. I have never fallen in the 6 years that I have been partnered with Brooke when she is at my side. There is no way to thank those involved in her training, and there is no price to this peace of mind! Thanks to all who consider donating to this charity which has made such a difference in my life.

Assistance Dogs of America, Inc. has always encouraged me to expand my world with my partner at my side. Brooke has been trained to help me at home with my needs, and to travel by my side. The organization encouraged me to put my trust in my assistance dog, and life has never been the same since I took this advice!
