Update on Jacob's Autism Life Dog Edit Nicki and I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported our fundraising project to get an autism support dog for our son Jacob. It's been awhile since we last updated everyone and we have to share some very upsetting news. The charitable organisation we chose to train and provide Jacob's dog, have ceased to operate. The owner appears to have told all their clients a slightly different story and has disappeared with people's hard earned money. Fortunately we haven't given them any of the money that you all kindly donated, but we have lost £1500 of our own deposit money. We are now looking into the process of starting a new application for a support dog and will keep you posted of we have any more news. Thank you all again for your generosity and hopefully we'll have some news soon. I will be contacting the police to report our deposit money as stolen. Best wishes, Geoff and Nicki
