Smart Pup for Nin

Smart Pup for Nin

Maliyah (known as Nin) is a beautiful 11 year old girl, who knows how to make people smile.
50.55% Raised
$10,110.00 donated of $20,000.00 goal
89 Donors

Her best days are full of constant smooches, loads of laughter, music, family and swimming. Due to her oxygen being cut off at birth Nin was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, microcephally, a corticle vision impairment and seizures that occur almost every week.

We’re fundraising to get Nin her own Smart Pup to improve her independence. With a Smart Pup Nin, will have a constant companion who will be an additional support to help her and her family manage her seizures and other disabilities. Our hope is that a Smart Pup will help Nin to self regulate her emotions and give her the security she needs to start sleeping in her own bed, without Mum.

For Nin to have her own Smart Pup, would be a dream come true. This will be life changing for her family but more importantly for Nin, as she grows and matures.

This organisation is a non for-profit organisation and we feel well and truly honoured to have been chosen. The training for the pup can take 12-18 months but it is intense, and these dogs are just incredible.

Your donation no matter how small would be greatly appreciated.
