Be Like Josh
Be Like Josh
August 31st – September 13th
The Be Like Josh foundation is a non profit organization dedicated to celebrating animals with special needs. We believe that all animals and humans, wherever they are on the spectrum of abilities, are worthy of being seen, loved and appreciated. Our rescue arm operates much like a traditional rescue organization, however we predominantly take in dogs with special needs. Because these types of animals can often require more attention and expense, we generally manage no more than 5 or 6 dogs in our rescue at any given time. Through donations, the Be Like Josh Foundation pays for all intake evaluations, vaccines, spay/neuter and any needed diagnostics, including MRI’s, which can be rather costly. Our rescue also pays for follow up medical exams, proper nutrition, supplements, medications, behavioral training (if needed) and any other remedies or therapies prescribed by attending veterinarians. Our financial support continues until the dog is officially adopted.

This amazing design was created by Brogan. This 12 year old was born with Down syndrome but that hasn’t slowed her down at all. Brogan is a dancer, gymnast/cheerleader/model/actress. She has been featured in print ads for Target, Legoland, and Disney. Brogan has also been featured in movies on the Hallmark Channel. We cannot wait to see what she does next. You can follow her accomplishments on her Instagram page @brogan_paul
Justin created this fantastic design of Olive. Justin was born with both autism and Down syndrome yet he doesn’t let that slow him down. This young man is a very talented wood craftsman, loves working out, and he has been featured on a beefcake calendar with his firefighter buddies. You can follow Justin at Friends of Justin Lundeen on Facebook and he would love to see you in his shirt. You can follow Olive on Instagram @olive.the.tiny.doodle

Hi, my name is Renee, I am 20yrs old and created this design. I live in Australia and I was diagnosed with ASD (“moderate” functioning label) on my 17th birthday. I love drawing, 3D modeling/printing, rock climbing and playing soccer. My favorite animals are dogs and goats. My favorite thing in the whole world is my rescue pit-bull Buddy. He’s basically my spirit animal.Along with being autistic, I also have Irlen syndrome and some mental health issues that I’m working through.
