URGENT! - DONATIONS NEEDED FOR ORLA'S TRAINING! 11:57 AM

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb237/glerch_2007/PICT0181_edited-1.jpg

Hi, I’m Orla. I’m an 8 month old puppy being trained by Dogs for Autism to go to a home and live with a child dealing with autism. Did you know that 1 in 150 children are affected with autism? I’ll help the autistic child stop repetitive behavior by licking and nudging him or her. I’ll also help the child with language skills as they often talk to me before the adults in their life.

I’ll help to keep my child safe from the world. I block my child from going where they should not go, and I’ll herd them back to mom and dad. And I’ll go everywhere with my child to help them. I can’t wait till I’m fully trained and go to my child. Dogs for Autism trains dogs like me and then places them into the home at no charge to the family. However, there is a little problem with that. Dogs for Autism is lacking funds to finish my training. It will cost $9000.00 to finish training me.

You could help me a lot by donating a few dollars to Orla’s team at Dogs for Autism and passing me on to your friends and family. It’s quick, and easy. All you need is a credit card.

If you want you can even start your own team! Or you can join my team if you would like. 

Just go to this link http://dogsforautism.com/participants.php?id=3 and choose Donate Now, on the donate screen choose Orla’s Team. If you would like to find out more about our program you can go to www.dogsforautism.org

If you would rather send a check please send it to the following address:

Dogs for Autism

330 E Coffee Street

Greenville, SC 29601

Please remember to pass me on to your friends and family.  The more people who know about us the more people we can help! 

Thank you,

Orla, Ginnie Lerch, & Angel

Angel  is my first team mate.

Forgot to say you can copy this picture to pass it on!
