Are you here looking for the latest on the Pepsi Pups? (All previous posts are here)
Even the Chicago Tribune ran a No-Update Update on this whole mess.
Once again, Lea Kaydus, the founder of Animals For Autism (who is an individual and not an organization…..) is gone.
Global Giving is not giving any updates.
Pepsi, well we have already established that Pepsi doesn’t care.
Out of the original 13 families, not a single one I was able to contact has heard ANYTHING. Even though they have been calling, and emailing and ASKING for information.
Why the silence?
I would think that if the grantee is on schedule with her expected completion date, someone would be shouting that from the rooftops.
What is the secret?
Besides the fact that the grant period ended March 31st.
And I have not heard of a single well-trained service dog being delivered by Lea Kaydus.
I have heard of a very poorly trained dog being delivered to a family that was not part of the Pepsi Pups. That dog was so unsocialized and poorly trained that the family was forced to abandon all hope of using that particular dog and have had to start back with another service dog organization.
So………have you heard anything? Because the families the $50,000 grant was supposed to benefit have not.
And I know you are reading my blog.
