Hi! I am fundraising for an Assistance Dog for my son, David (6).

We need to raise $20,000+ to help ADNZ with the costs involved in raising and training each Service Dog.

Up to 10 auction winners will get to put their logo or name with a credit (e.g. With thanks to the Smith Family of Hamilton for their generous donation to David and ADNZ etc) on my car!!

Or if you wish to sponsor our matched Dog on a regular basis, either with donations into a Vet account or by purchasing food/registration/whatever is needed, the sign could say: "Many thanks to the ongoing sponsorship of David and his Assistance Dog by XYZ Company Ltd, Ph/Web".

David, my 6yr old son, is diagnosed with Moebius and Pierre-Robin Syndromes. Issues associated include paralysed facial nerves, paralysed vocal chords, low muscle tone, tight & underdeveloped ligaments etc. David has a Tracheotomy tube to breathe and is non-verbal.
Due to low muscle tone and ligament/tendon issues (Arthrogryposis) he has no balance and must walk with a walker, or holding the hand of an adult (very unsteady on his feet in both those situations), or, as he has been lately, he takes off with one speed - super fast- but does not have the ability to halt himself safely other than to drop to the ground. He also has no sense of safety and so road (and other) dangers are a very real issue with him.
David has regular suctioning, day and night, of his Tracheotomy tube to keep his airway clear. He needs constant 1-on-1 attention 24/7.

David is a smart, funny, caring boy who loves to make you laugh, & has great potential. I am very proud of my boy who has so far been to the operating theatre 33 times & has many more to come.

An Assistance Dog will help with mobility, road safety, sight issues & will give David some freedom from being constantly watched. An ADNZ Dog will be trained to recognise sounds & alert me. This will provide David with some level of "normalacy" regarding control & independence.

Please help David get his ADNZ Dog! Thank you kindly :)
