… having a disability made you feel invisible.

For as little as £4.69 one of our dogs can enable someone living with a disability to go out with confidence.

Cover the cost of a working dog for one day

Brain damaged at birth, Joel was diagnosed with cerebral palsy quadriplegia, which means he has difficulty controlling movement in his arms and legs, his speech is slurred and he also has associated dyspraxia.

Joel has a wonderfully loving family and a tight knit group of childhood friends, but it was outside his close circle of support that Joel’s life was impacted by his disability. People would simply walk past and ignore him. The effect was that Joel wasn’t living the carefree and independent life of a teenager. Until he was matched with a cheeky young Dogs for Good Labrador called Harry.

Watch the video to see how Harry helps Joel every day…

Harry not only acts as a social ice-breaker for Joel, but helps him with practical day-to-day tasks such as:

  • Retrieving dropped items
  • Helping him on and off with his clothes
  • Pulling the duvet off in the mornings

It costs just £4.69 to support an assistance dog like Harry for a day.
