4 PAWS for Zachary

4 PAWS for Zachary
Zachary has been diagnosed with severe anxiety, Autism, Tourette’s syndrome, ADHD, and Intermittent Explosive Disorder. Every day he faces challenges, and spends most of his current time alone in his room, behind his electronics. He is a very smart and loving boy. He puts others first when he can, and he used to love playing sports, like baseball and basketball. He always loved being outside riding his bike or his scooter. It seemed to change overnight at the age of 4 years old.

Right now he does not get out much. He stays home and plays video games, where he knows it is safe. We never know when he might have an episode and get out of control where people stare at him and start whispering and pointing. He used to play Baseball, and would LOVE to do it again. He likes to go to Kings Island; however, sometimes the crowd and noise may be too much for him.

Zachary just turned 12 years old April 2nd, and we found out he has been accepted for a 4 Paws for Ability Multipurpose Assistance Service Dog. Zachary’s new companion will help support him using Behavior Disruption (Lap, Nuzzle, Touch, Deep Pressure, and Kisses) we are hoping this is the answer we needed to get back Zachary’s independence and love of life!

It will cost 4 Paws at least $22,000 to place a dog with Zachary. We are committed to raising $15,000 in support of the 4 Paws mission and can reach our goal with your help. If you can help us with a tax-deductible donation, you can visit 4 Paws Donation Page (http://www.4PawsForAbility.org/donate-now). Include Zachary’s name in the “instructions to merchant” through PayPal. Also, you can mail a check with his name on the memo line to:
