Meet Rory

DSCF4349
Rory was born June 5, 2008. At the age of 7, in August, 2015, he was
diagnosed with generalized seizures. His brain was constantly seizing which would
cause him to have short term memory loss. It was difficult for him to learn new
things. When he was told to do something, he would start doing it, then his brain
would seize and reboot. He would then forget what he was told to do. On
December 25, 2015, Rory had his first grand mall seizure. He was put on several
medications. In January, 2016, one of his medications caused him to have
pancreatitis. In March, 2016, they discovered a pseudo cyst on his pancreas and
performed major surgery to remove it. Rory still has grand mall seizures that we
are trying to control with medication, we just never know when they will come.
He loves dirt bikes, ATV’s and just being outside. We had to sell his dirt bike and
his ATV due to his condition. Rory still is very happy and positive even through all
the hospital stays, seizures, surgeries and doctor appointments. He is very brave
and strong. Rory does have difficulty making friends and developing relationships.
We are hoping that a service dog will be a companion to Rory so he can feel more
secure, at ease, make more friends and live life to the fullest even with his
disabilities. Thank You!!!

Logan & Rockford – Let The Magic Begin…

IMG_0100

We first met Logan in October of 2015. A funny, outgoing and kind 13 year-old, Logan loves NASCAR, Minecraft, building with Legos and watching sports. He likes to sing and enjoys music as well. Logan has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD, and struggles with anxiety. He has difficulty forming relationships and making friends, as well as communicating what he is feeling and thinking. This can lead to a lot of frustration. He also has a difficult time focusing and completing tasks. We adopted Logan when he was four and a half years-old and we’re the fourth placement he had known. All of that moving has caused him to continuously worry about feeling secure. His parents are hopeful that an Autism Service Dog will be a companion for him and help him to meet and make friends, provide security and ease his anxiety.

These days it’s Spring Training at Logan’s house! With Rockford by his side, Logan has a renewed focus, confidence and general sense of ease when out making new friends. Now mom’s biggest frustration, is getting the boys to stop playing ball when it’s time for dinner. With Logan’s smile looking back at her, it’s a trade well worth making.

Mission Accomplished! Thanks to all of Logan’s friends, family and of course the W.A.G.S.’ community for making this partnership happen! Every event attended, every raffle ticket purchased, makes moments like this possible. Let the magic begin…
