Keanu is a 15-year-old Autistic Spectrum Child, and also suffers from severe ADHD, has dyslexia and speech impairment. The need for a service/guide dog is to assist Keanu with daily tasks that he battles with, anxiety as well as “social” interaction with people, keeping him calmer and assisting to ensure he takes his medication as Keanu is not functional without his medication at all.
If we can get this process going, there is a possibility that Keanu would be able to live independently when he is an adult.
We are doing various fundraising and if the full amount is not reached, at least some of the funds will go towards the goal. We have collected R10 000 thus far – the cost of the dog is R50 000, thus the balance needed is R40 000.
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to Medic Alert Dogs*
