Life Saving Dog for "Little" Nick

Nick Spatafora, a sweet 8-year-old boy was diagnosed with autism at the young age of 14 months. Aside from the difficulties associated with autism, Nick also suffers from seizures, putting him at great risk of developing epilepsy in the future. 


Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in children, who face difficult challenges and struggles in their daily lives. Nick is non-verbal due to his apraxia and uses an augmentative communication device. An autism service dog will help Nick therapeutically in many different ways; it will give Nick companionship, emotional support, and help ease sensory overload, which is a common challenge for those with autism




Help us support Nick’s family and reach this goal of getting him a service dog. The cost of this is not something they can do alone!


Let Us Donate For You

Our agency will donate $10 to Nick and his family on your behalf for every recommendation you send our way, and we'll also add you to our monthly drawing for a $50 Gift Card! Getting involved has never been so simple, or free!
