When Allegra visited ECAD and met some of the Service Dogs-in-Training, she knew immediately that a service dog will improve the quality of her life. At right, Allegra enjoys some puppy time with six-months-old Disney.

Meet ECAD Client Allegra Jacobs

My name is Allegra Doll Jacobs and I am 23 years old. I was born in Stamford, CT and live in Ridgefield, CT. In 2015, I received an Associates Degree in General Studies from Shorter University, and in 2017, a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. In 2018, I earned a Masters Degree in Anthrozoology. All of my degrees have been completed through distance learning online.

I am a hard worker, lover of all animals big and small, and a colorful and fun loving individual. I love Disney, Harry Potter, and the small fun things that make day-to-day life worth living. However, I have been suffering from debilitating anxiety and panic attacks since I was thirteen years old, severe enough for me to bend my life around it. If a panic attack is too strong, I am at risk of passing out and hurting myself, potentially very seriously. In 2018 I was also diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which only adds to the daily stress I incur.

Having an ECAD Service Dog would help me work through my struggles with the support of a furry friend who would be with me at all times and would be allowed everywhere. Spending mere minutes with some of the Service Dogs-in-Training at ECAD solidified for me that a Service Dog of my own would be more than beneficial. I’m so young, but in several ways I feel so old. And, I need a helping hand—both physically and emotionally. My dog will remind me every day that I am only human; humans are not perfect, and my dog will be here for me no matter what. Together, we will get through everything, one day at a time!

My goal is independence, support, and more adventures in life. I know ECAD can take me there.
