Ezra Santos


Dreamer Ezra Santos

Ezra Santos is a sweet, happy, energetic 4-year-old who has an extremely rare genetic condition that is causing him to lose all his abilities.

Ezra is expected to be completely wheelchair bound, unable to speak, eat, and control any of his movements within the next few years. He has seizures that will likely become harder to control and his respiratory health will decline. A service dog will have a huge impact on Ezra’s quality of life. We are so thankful that 4 Paws for Ability has approved him to receive a dog.

How Can You Help?

It costs 4 Paws between $40,000-$60,000 to raise, train, and place a service dog. Our family has to raise $17,000 of that to pay for a service dog.
