The Story

Snohomish, WA

Cami Ware is an artist who enjoys painting landscapes and florals in both oil and watercolor. She also enjoys hiking and photography. Her love for art led her to pursue an art degree, but challenges with her mental health and anxiety recently forced her to withdraw from classes and return home.

Throughout her life, Cami has struggled with chronic depression and anxiety. She tried different medications prescribed by various doctors, but none seemed to have much of an impact on improving her condition. In 2013, she reached her lowest point after being hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder. Shortly after, she experienced a traumatic life event that left her with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Following her diagnosis, Cami was prescribed the correct medication, but her condition continues to affect her daily life. She still gets severe anxiety when in public which prevents her from getting out of the house and doing the things she once enjoyed. Cami also has nightmares routinely and struggles with chronic insomnia. To help her manage her anxiety, she sees her psychiatrist regularly. During one of her recent visits, her psychiatrist provided a recommendation in support of getting a service dog to help her cope and regain some independence.

Cami 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 recognize when she is beginning to have a panic attack or interrupt self-destructive behavior by performing deep pressure therapy. Her Little Angel will also be trained to perform non-protective boundary control to create more space between herself and others around her in crowded areas. “I would really like to further my education,” Cami said. “I believe that with continued therapy and the assistance of a service dog to lessen the anxiety and stress caused by both the pressure and the social aspects of college, I will be able to do so.”

The high cost of a trained psychiatric service dog will delay Cami’s placement with her Little Angel. She hopes to raise $15,000 through RedBasket.org to allow her to begin the process of placement and training of her service dog. “Having a trained service dog to help me cope day-to-day gives me comfort and hope that I may be more successful in managing my disability in the future,” said Cami. By making a tax-deductible donation, you can help unite Cami with her canine companion. Share her story today!

I'm also on the waiting list for a psychiatric service dog through Little Angels. I'm a college student as well and I understand the struggle of dealing with mental illness and being away from family while trying to start your career. You can wait this out and your pup will be here sooner than you think!

Thanks so much Haley! I hope you receive your perfect dog soon, maybe we’ll even meet at handler training!
