ANGEL SPONSORS NEEDED!
Agape’ Therapeutic Medical Alert Dog Society is a non-profit society that requires help. We are in desperate need of a place to train our service dogs. We train dogs for our Canadian Veterans who have returned from war torn counties, as well as others who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, as well as many other types of Service Dogs.
We are so happy to and proud to help our Veterans and many others to re-build their lives.
Our request is to help us find a location to train and house our dogs while we are training them to be partnered with an individual who requires assistance. We are looking to rent, lease, or purchase a property, perhaps a small hobby farm.
When an individual returns from a war torn country, often they can bring back physical and/ or mental injuries that limit their abilities to enjoy their life that they knew before deployment. This can cause unparalleled pain that can be an enormous challenge to overcome whether it is a physical challenge or living with PTSD, mental illness or a brain injury. This is true for anyone who suffers from the various forms of mental illness. It is not easy to heal with a “one size fits all” approach and often-traditional therapies have limited success. It is my belief that you must give the brain and the heart stimulating challenges in order to overcome these obstacles, restore functionality and bring back enthusiasm for life.
It is not uncommon to have a Service Dog trained to do between 60 and 80 or more, mobility task commands, such as opening doors, turning off lights, putting clothes into the washer and dryer, putting dishes into a dishwasher, picking up dropped items, helping to put clothes on and take clothes off, helping to transfer from a transfer board to a wheel chair, bed, etc. Dogs can be trained to assist someone with physical injuries, such as loss of limbs, balance problems due to health challenges or for individuals who suffer from spinal chord injuries, as well as many other forms of physical challenges brought on by injuries or illness.
Paramedical Service Dogs can be a unique type of aid to promote wellness for individuals with emotional concerns or mental challenges, including PTSD. These dogs can be trained between 4 or five to over 80 commands that can help enable the individual to stay calm in high stress situation, and take control of their lives verses becoming out of control if an elevated anxiety situation, was to occur. When an individual is partnered with a Service Dog and a working union is formed the dog can be supportive and help an individual to become stronger in their abilities to function in a manner of greater independence, enabling them to overcome obstacles where other therapies may have been unsuccessful.
