Here's How You Can Help A Local Family Pay For An Autism Assistance Dog
Help Porter here
This morning on the show, Tanya & Steve were joined by local mum, Bianca, whose 3-year-old son has level 3 autism, is non-verbal and have sensory processing difficulties.
Porter has been approved for a certified autism assistance dog through Smart Pups Australia. However, it's $30,000 to pay for the cost or the dog and its extensive training.
Due to COVID-19, the family hasn't been able to do face-to-face fundraisers. Instead, Bianca is asking local businesses to donate prizes for an online raffle, where proceeds from the tickets purchased will go towards Porter's support dog.
Tanya & Steve have donated prizes! If you'd like to help out too, you can head to smartpups.org.au and search for ‘Smart Pup For Porter’
