As part of our community support, from the proceeds from the RE/MAX Sabre Realty Annual Charity Golf Tournament, there is an annual donation to the Autism Support Dogs of B.C. (www.autismsupportdogs.org) to help in the purchase and training of a service animal for children living with autism.
The Society has recognized the support by naming one of the newest service dogs – ‘Sabre’. He will be at RE/MAX Sabre Realty during the next office meeting so we can meet him.
Some of the benefits that can be experienced are:
It will help to bring independence not just for the children but also for their parents.
An autism support dog can allow the child to participate in education, social and leisure activities as the canine reduces the stress associated with interacting with other people and getting involved in social situations.
