Please contribute to the necessary rehab dollars to fund Mikey's driving school for people with paralysis and Oreo's surgery so she can work and play again.

Due to Oreo being a Border Collie Labrador mix, she needs the CCL surgery for active, large breeds which is a minimum $5K; plus, follow-up x-rays and rehab. Oreo is turning 7 this July, so she still has about half her life still to give to Mikey. Oreo picked Mikey out when we were visiting the litter being fostered in Seattle from the shelter. They are the best of pals. We trained her to be a Medical Alert Service Dog for Mikey. 

The Driving Rehab Program at UW has a $1K out-of-pocket evaluation cost before entry into the program. Upon entry, Mikey will be able to learn how to drive ALL the different hand-control options on the program's provided vehicles:

"Clients with significant mobility or strength limitations can use the program's specially equipped vehicles, which offer reduced-effort steering, pneumatic hand controls, touch button controls, and ramp/lift systems."

You can help these 2 reach their potential & become wonderfully independent together by contributing to our immediate need for rehab dollars before Oreo builds up more scar tissue as she was injured at the end of December. Mikey will be 18 this July. What fantastic birthday gifts for both Mikey & Oreo, independence, and wellness, respectively. Thank you for being part of our valued community of support!

This incredible athlete, Mikey, and his service dog, Oreo, are in need of your help! Oreo loves to run, but she needs a $6K CCL surgery to stabilize her right hind knee. Mikey is approaching independent living age this July and needs $1K to be evaluated for the UW Driving Rehab Program.
