Changing the World One Dog at a Time

kenyonk9foundationbanner

When I was a little girl if there was any sort of animal around you could bet any amount of money that I would be involved in some way shape or form…. Family get togethers, the neighbors house, and yes, even when it rained I would make sure all the worms would safely find their way back to the soil. I love animals.

I also love people. It has often times been my down fall. I don’t give up on them. When I love someone I love them with everything in me and I forgive them no matter what. It is pretty insane at times.

Put those two things together and well, you have a great dog trainer. 😉 But in all seriousness, I feel like one of the luckiest ladies alive to be able to do what I do and then let’s add in Kenyon K9 Foundation…..

I moved to Dallas the end of last October and met Valerie Fry, another well-respected dog trainer in the Dallas area. We talked about our passion for people and pets and how we wanted to make a difference in our community and the Foundation (over Mexican food I might add) was born.

Kenyon K9 Foundation is a non-profit organization that will provide service dogs for children with autism and soldiers with PTSD. If you’ve known me for any amount of time you will know that both of these things are held very near and dear to my heart. Both my twin boys have been diagnosed on the spectrum and I was involved in the military community for years and saw the affects of PTSD on the soldier and the family.

We need the help of our community to take the Foundation to its full fruition. We just launched a gofundme page to raise the funds that we need for the facility, start-up, as well as operational costs.

If this is something that is near and dear to your heart please help us “change the world one dog at a time ™.”

    I know there is a true need for service and therapy dogs, it is my dream to have a trained dog with my son who is was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4.
