“Providing Service Dogs to Children and Vets with Disabilities”
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/05/2014 -- The Worthy Collection, a charity-influenced apparel brand, has joined forces with 4 Paws for Ability, a non-profit agency that provides increased independence for children with disabilities and assistance to their families by the training and placement of quality, task trained service dogs. This is an apparel fundraiser where ‘The Worthy Collection’ will make a donation of each “T-Shirts for a Cause” purchased to this charity in order to help train and place dogs with eligible recipients.
“A dog from 4 Paws for Ability can change a life, maybe even save a life,” said Chris Worthy, Founder of The Worthy Collection. “It’s just remarkable what can happen when you put a trained service dog together with a disabled person who wants to live more independently. It’s a magical healing process. We’re very proud to be associated with this effort.”
4 Paws for Ability’s primary goal is to provide as many children as possible with access to a qualified service dog trained specifically for the individual child’s needs and increase public awareness of the laws regarding service animals and the value they provide their owners. 4 Paws for Ability also works with Armed Forces veterans who have lost the use of their limbs or their hearing while in active combat.
Another goal of 4 Paws is to have a large corps of volunteers to assist in all areas of the day-to-day operations of the agency. The agency plans to be financially independent in the near term, with funds available to those clients who need assistance with the fundraising process. They also envisions growing to become the preferred provider of service dogs for children at the National level. Eligibility to receive a service dog depends on whether disabilities fall under the definition of such in the Americans with Disability Act of 1990.
