You’ve seen the billboards.
Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with autism.
But it’s not just the child who’s affected.
Every 20 minutes, another family becomes a slave to
a child’s safety.
Every 20 minutes a family loses hope for a normal life.
But there’s a program that can change that family’s life.
A program that can help restore hope.
And it rests on four paws.
You can give parents extra arms for holding, extra legs for running, extra eyes for seeing.
By supporting DFA you can give new hope to families facing challenges from autism.
Could you be the missing piece of DFA’s puzzle?
Can you help us today?
Dogs for Autism (DFA), a non-profit corporation, was founded in 1991 (formerly called Dogs for
Disabled) and trained service dogs to assist with a wide variety of disabilities.
In 1996, DFA began ground-breaking work, formalized in 2007 with the new name, to meet the
challenges of autism. DFA has successfully trained canines to work as a team in families with
autism, increasing physical safety, independence, and interaction with the children who so
desperately need every available resource.
