Review for Save the Kid Fund Inc, EAST LYME , CT, USA
Our family had the support of an incredible service dog and loyal companion for 13 years. When Murray retired at age 11 we knew we could never replace him but our children (and their parents) still needed the support only a service dog could provide.
We decided we would bring a carefully chosen puppy into our lives to raise with the children the way we had with Murray. Then we would have the dog trained by professionals for obedience and service tasks. We found our puppy, Samson, in December of 2019 - what could possibly go wrong...
Well a global pandemic wreaked havoc with our original plans and the cost of training had increased - we were unsure if we could afford basic obedience courses let alone specialized training for public access and service tasks. We NEEDED Samson to be more than a companion animal and Save the Kid Fund came to the rescue.
Save the Kid Fund helped pay for the basic obedience course with a local highly skilled trainer and after completing that program Samson went on to a specialized program at Empire State K9 in Brookfield CT to refine his skills and qualify for service work.
Save the Kid fund didn’t just provide financial support when it was needed most. In Samson’s training they gave us peace of mind and a means to support our children for years to come and they gave Nathan and Anna a loving & loyal companion even when he’s not wearing his working vest.
