The Story

San Diego, CA

Jean Dolan has a very loving and supportive family. Her favorite activities are singing in her church choir, gardening, working on puzzles, walking on the beach, and making crafts. She has always loved animals especially her family dogs. Now, she is in need of a dog to care for her.

Jean began dealing with depression seven years ago, and major anxiety was triggered after the unexpected death of her sister. The loss had a tremendous impact on her and led her to being diagnosed withanxiety, as well as worsened symptoms of depression. She started visiting a therapist and taking medication to help manage her condition. However, dealing with her anxiety is a daily battle.

The fears and stresses of driving and public places, as well as the stress of everyday work, have blocked Jean from enjoying her life to the fullest. Getting regular sleep is difficult because she often has racing thoughts and nightmares. If her system becomes overloaded in public, she will need to leave gatherings and return home. Her anxiety can also affect her physically leaving her unable to focus or have constant headaches. To help her better manage her condition, her therapist recommended she look into getting a service dog. “A service dog would help me reclaim her independence and feel comfortable again,” Jean said.

Jean was recently approved to receive a psychiatric service dog through Little Angels Service Dogs of San Diego, California. Her service dog will be trained to provide assistance for her specific symptoms. Not only will her Little Angel signal when Jean is about to have a potential anxiety attack, but will also apply calming deep pressure therapy. When in a crowded environment, her dog will establish a subtle physical barrier around her.

To be matched with a dog as soon as possible, Jean hopes to raise goal $20,000 through RedBasket.org. “I pray every day that a service dog will be life-changing, and going forward I have faith that having this dog will help me to function more like my old self,” said Jean. By making a tax-deductible donation, you can help her regain her life. Donate and share her story today!
