Puppy Raiser Brittany

By | Volunteer

4 Paws For Ability: We love hearing why people puppy raise! Puppy raiser Brittany Talley shares her why!
“I became involved with 4 Paws when I was in college being a puppy sitter and now I am fostering my first dog, Zuky from the Comic Book Day Litter ! It is one of the most rewarding things I have been able to do. I love the fact that I get to educate the public and talk about what this amazing organization can do for those in need! I have met so many great people along the way and cannot wait to continue being a part of these dogs journeys!”

Kylie Vogt

By | Make a Dream Come True
Kylie is an amazingly happy little girl. She has been through so much!! Not knowing what Kylie will do, she has conquered SO much! She learned to crawl at 2 almost 3 then at 3 while close to the end of her first year in preschool learned to WALK!!! This did not come without its challenges. She is still a little unstable, but works through it and tries so hard!!!! She has learned to "run." We call it Kylie's run. She is non verbal, but has also made soooo much progress in vocalization!!! She is trying to say NAMES of everyday people that she is around. Also many people are well aware of Kylie's seizures, which might I add are very scary!!!! In true Kylie form when she does have an episode she takes it like a champ and FIGHTS!!!! She hasn't had many surgeries but has had a few: tonsils and adenoids removed, ear tubes various times along with a few other procedures. Kylie fights and pops right back up EVERY single time!!! This child lets nothing stop her!!! Kylie's genetic abnormality gives her a very slight increase of developing cancer, which obviously doesn't mean much to Kylie but she keeps fighting!!! With all the appointment, scares and tears we have had with her, she is ALWAYS HAPPY and ALWAYS FIGHTING! With all the fighting it's our turn to make something happen for her that will give her more independence and more FREEDOM! Which she so much deserves.  She deserves to try and be a "typical" child as much as possible, and this dog will give her that opportunity!!!  This will also give her dad a little bit less anxiety when it comes to Kylie. When she is playing if he turns his backs for a second there is a companion ALWAYS watching out for this little girl!!! No matter the amount every little bit will help!!!! Please help us reach our goal and get Miss Kylie her Dog, her little bit of independence.

Fall Festival Entertainment Announced

By | Events & Fundraisers

BIG news! We are announcing our entertainment for the 4 Paws Fall Festival; 4 Paws’ very own dog trainer, Emily Sulka!

Emily began music at an early age, starting choir in fourth grade and band in fifth grade. She’s always loved singing and writing, and started writing songs in high school, which is also when she started playing ukulele and guitar. Through the years, she majored in music and spent a semester in Nashville focused on songwriting. A year ago, she released her first EP, This is My Stage, which can be found anywhere you listen to music. Since then, she’s been working on writing more songs, as well as a novel, and performing.

Emily was introduced to 4 Paws For Ability her very first week of college, through Cedarville University’s involvement fair. She knew she wanted to be an on campus foster, but first she volunteered at 4 Paws for two years, became a sitter for a semester, and finally fostered two dogs, Pikachu and Ender. She was also Events Coordinator for the Cedarville student org, K9s at the Ville. After graduation, she realized she wanted to do service dog training for a living, and was hired as a Training Assistant at 4 Paws for Ability in May of 2019.

Check her out on Spotify here: shorturl.at/GNRTW
