My name is Carter Brotsky, I am 13 years old. I was born with Spina Bifida, hydrocephalus and chiari malformation. I have wanted a mobility service dog for many years. A service dog would help me with balance, retrieval, behavior disruption, open and close, access buttons when I am in my wheelchair and more. Sometimes I fall down and need help getting up or I need help during the night my service dog could help me up or bark to alert my mom and dad that I need help during the night.
Some of my hobbies include playing video games, hanging out with my sister and her fiancé Jake. When the weather is nice I like to spend time outside, driving remote control cars or flying a drone, and going for walks with my dogs on my electric scooter or wheelchair around town. I also like to watch dirt track stock car races. We have two other dogs at home Charlie a golden doodle and Moose is a ShihPoo. Our family loves animals! We live in a small rural town in Nebraska. If you have read along this far Thank You for your support!
I need to raise $20,000 for a service dog. It costs between 40,000-60,000 to raise, train and place a service dog at 4 Paws for Ability. Donations in support of Carter can be made directly to 4 Paws for Ability be sure to write Carter’s name on the memo line. Mail checks to:

Training a service dog to meet our child’s requirements can be very costly. On average it costs between $40,000-60,000 to raise, train, and place a service dog at 4 Paws for Ability. While 4 Paws for Ability fundraises to help cover a significant portion of this cost, families are tasked with raising $20,000 of that amount or $23,000 if receiving a poodle, doodle or papillon. We hope that we can receive assistance from our beloved family and friends to help make our service dog dream a reality.
