Autism Service Dog Delivered by SDWR to Family in Monroe, NJ

Monroe, NJ, September 17, 2019 --( Michael, an 8-year-old little boy from Monroe, NJ,
received a very special delivery today of his very own Service Dog from SDWR. Michael's service dog,
Kelly will be able to accompany him everywhere thanks to the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Michael's parents are looking forward to having additional help with their son's safety, sleeping
difficulties, and dealing with loud noises. With his Autism Service Dog, Kelly, by his side, Michael's
family is hopeful that it will help him better communicate his needs and assist him with his daily
struggles of autism.

SDWR will continue to work with Michael, his parents, and Kelly in their home environment, to train for
specific needs he may have. What makes SDWR so unique from other nonprofit service dog
organizations is this highly customized and tailored training program. SDWR trainers will continue to
return for training sessions with Michael, his family, and Kelly every 3-4 months during the next 18
months to make a successful team and gain public access certification.

As an honored graduate of the SDWR Fallen Officer Puppy Program (FOPP), the service dog is named
after fallen hero Police Officer Eric Guy Kelly of the Pittsburg Police Department, Pennsylvania. FOPP is
an initiative by SDWR to pay respect to the legacy of service by fallen American police who sacrificed
their lives in the line of duty. Autism Service Dog Kelly's work with Michael will carry on in memoriam
of Police Officer Eric Guy Kelly's life of service before self.
