Welcome to Jog for Henry's Dog!

Our Mission

Our mission with the "Jog For Henry's Dog" Foundation is to create awareness about the benefits, cost and need for autism service dogs and provide financial assistance to other families with autistic children that would greatly benefit from an Autism Service Dog.

What can an "Autism Dog" do?

*Provide a 'safety net' by being tethered together to keep a child from danger: running in front of a car, pools or deep bodies of water, staying close to his caregiver in public.
*Help divert attention from repetative behaviors or visual stimulation.
*Calm the child when anxious or upset by diverting their attention.
*Many children with ASD are "Non-Verbal" so they share the SAME form of communication as their dog and truly have their own 'special' language. They understand each other in an amazing way.
