Life threatening food allergies affect millions of children in the United States alone. Food allergies send countless people to the emergency room fearing for their lives or the lives of loved ones. Unfortunately, many do not survive.
A Food Detector Dog can be a valuable tool for those with life threatening allergies. Since a dog’s sense of smell far surpasses that of humans, detection of odors is a perfect job for a correctly trained dog. Once extensively trained, a dog will easily be able to detect minute quantities of an allergen in any form; raw, cooked, oil, butter, dust, etc.
What is taken for granted by most is a luxury for these families. Because their children can even be contact sensitive to common, everyday foods, they must be constantly vigilant in protecting their children. Many times they do not participate in group activities like church, school, or even a simple ball game. Because there is no cure for severe food allergies, these families need help to begin a life with more freedom.
Many families would love to have a companion like an Angel Service Dog to help their child gain freedom. For most, the cost is prohibitive. Angel Service Dogs has been formed to coordinate donations to help families one dog at a time. We will also help distribute literature to help churches and civic groups help those suffering with life threatening allergies. Allerrific is proud to sponsor Angel Service Dogs and assist people in making donations to the Angel Service Dogs organization. All proceeds from a donation go to Angel Service Dogs. We are just glad to be able to help out.
