One Dollar Can Make A Difference

The Rewonlinski’s hope thousands of one dollar donations can buy them a new four-legged friend. The Milwaukee family is trying to adopt a dog for their two beautiful little boys Ethan and Alex. This isn’t any dog, instead the animal is a trained therapy dog from the organization “4 Paws for Ability.” The dog is expensive, $13,000, but worth every penny to the Rewonlinski’s. This animal is specifically trained to work with their two autistic sons.

The 4 Paws for Ability organization lists many heart-warming success stories on its website with information about the dramatic difference these dogs can make in the lives of their owners. These dogs can have a calming effect on autistic children and can track them down if they wander away. These are the two things that the Rewonlinski’s say they desperately need to care for their boys.

The group helping the family is also pretty incredible. It’s called “Love Drop” and it helps raise money for animals or any other items. Each month there’s a new focus and videos to learn more about who’s requesting the assistance. Love Drop’s motto, “spend a dollar, change a life” which proves everyone has the power to help someone else in need.

In the end, the Rewonlinkski’s raised enough money to buy their therapy dog! If you’d like to learn more, or even help, please visit www.4pawsforability.org and www.lovedrop.us

    Hello from 4 Paws! Just wanted to clarify one thing about 4 Paws dogs – they are service dogs, not therapy dogs. Therapy dogs are wonderful creatures – they visit hospitals and nursing homes and cheer people up. Service dogs save lives. 4 Paws service dogs serve disabled children and adults in public and help with seizure or diabetic alert, mobility assistance, hearing ear/signal work, search and rescue/tracking, etc. So many people confuse the two so I just wanted to clarify this point. Thanks!
