To yysbryd for helping!!!! You are amazing!
ouch, wow. i’m so sorry you guys have to go through this. i donated $5 cause that’s all i can afford right now, but if there’s a specific way you want the word spread let me know.
Omg, thank you so much! You are such an amazing person, you have no idea how much this means to us.
If you reblog the post, or just let other people know, we, again, will be forever grateful.
Again, I can’t say thank you enough for your support!
overlijden asked: how much is a service dog? are you guys getting close at all?
There isn’t a specific final cost unfortunately . The only place near us that trains psychiatric service dogs costs $30/hr, but there is also the adoption of the dog, regular obedience training, food, vet, etc.
The professional that we are going through guides us through the processes so that the dog is train specifically for her from a puppy, rather than an organization training dogs and then the dog being assigned to the person.
We have about $300 right now, but that has mainly come from a donation of $250 we received a month or so ago (and we freakin’ cried our eyes out in gratitude - wish we could meet the person and just hug them forever). But from our research, the general cost for a service dog can range from $5,000-$10,000 and none of it is covered by insurance.
