Meet 15 year old, Rebeka. She suffers from Type 1 Diabetes, severe anxiety, bipolar disorder and ADHD.
Recently relocated from Kansas City, MO to Houston, at this time Rebeka must be home schooled due to her inability to function at a large High School. The hope is that a service dog, in conjunction with behavior therapy, can allow her to return to a normal school setting in the fall.
"We would like a Service dog to be able to ease anxiety in social situations and large crowds, provide pressure against the body during bouts of anxiety, possibly help identify extreme variances in blood glucose levels for hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia."
Rebeka is currently volunteering with a pit bull rescue organization in North Houston and has her eye on a couple of prospective candidate dogs for her Service Dog team.
Please help us fund their training!
