Post-polio syndrome has left me wheel-chair bound for many years. New Horizons gave me my first service dog 18 years ago. I now have my third New Horizons dog – Curry – who is as wonderful as my previous dogs. I had lost the confidence and ability to go anywhere before I got a service dog. They help me with everything from opening doors to getting things for me. I can’t even open the refrigerator without Curry’s help. He keeps me mobile. If I didn’t have a service dog I’m sure I would be bed-ridden. He even rode a ferris wheel with me and in that moment, I was on top of the world. In addition to providing me with wonderful dogs, the folks at New Horizons have been phenomenal with support and encouragement.
