    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    I'd like you to take a moment (if this is not your real life situation) to imagine having a child with a disability who you are watching struggle every day. Maybe your child has seizures and you are constantly worried that their next seizure will be their last, maybe they have a developmental disability and you watch them desperately trying to learn to walk or talk, maybe they have a disability which means they struggle with social interactions. Can you imagine how helpless that feels for a parent and how hard that must be for the child?

    Well that's where Pawsitive Squad comes in. We enable dogs to support under 25's with any disability or who are recovering from trauma through a variety of programs including therapy dog visits, assistance dog classes, canine assisted activities and much more.

    We have only been going for a year but have already made a huge difference in the lives of many of our customers but we still have a long way to go and that is why we NEED your help to continue to provide our services and to grow to help even more families. We are hoping to raise enough funds over the next term to be able to run a dog training camp over the summer holidays for children with disabilities but we also desperately need help to purchase equipment we desperately need and to fund our therapy dog visiting program which is free for our service users.

    Thank you x

      We have had a brilliant week at Pawsitive Squad! Our social support class was filled with fun games which focused on improving verbal communication, coordination and team work. Today we had our Christmas Party which was great fun! Lots of kids and dogs running around, playing with the parachute and parachute, painting and eating.... it's been a complete success :D Thank you for all our amazing supporters who make this all possible :)

      17 years ago, my husband and I got a Labrador puppy as a family pet. Wow! What a difference that dog made to our mildly Autistic son. It meant the world to us. Wishing you every success!!!
