Review for DogAbility Center, Inc., Syosset, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A wonderful place that I volunteer with my dog. We have entertained for Birthday parties, scouts earning badges, seniors, and a special program for people who are afraid of dogs. This year I also brought some children who were going through a tough time to be entertained by the other dogs. They had such a fabulous time and can’t wait to go again!

Review for DogAbility Center, Inc., Syosset, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer at dogability with my 5lb. dog. It is a very rewarding experience to see so many different people benefit from this organization. I have watched children at parties and scouts and other groups be delighted with the entertainment and love from the dogs. Then there is another group of individuals who are afraid of dogs. Dogability calls it fear of dog. They slowly work with each brave individual to overcome their fear. It brought tears to my eyes to see the progress as they learn to not be afraid and love the dogs. This is a wonderful organization and I am so honored to be a part of dogability.

Review for Making Headway Foundation Inc, Chappaqua, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Making Headway helped us through the most difficult time in our life, when our daughter Elizabeth was sick with a brain tumor. They helped make her happy and comfortable in the hospital where she already was getting the best medical care. They had parties and clowns, and wonderful Maya to share candy with everyone in the hopital. They worked together with us trying to make everything easier for the family and patient. Since Elizabeth went to heaven in 1997 they have continued to help us. They had counseling groups and family days at their beautiful house. To help others we began the Little Bit of a Walk in memory of our Elizabeth. All of the money raised from the walk are put towards research because it is so important to us. This year will be our 15th annual walk. Making Headway organization is always helping us with our walk before, the day of, and after. We could not do it without them.
