Saving a Dog's Life and Perhaps That of a Deaf Person
Dogs for the Deaf, a national Hearing Dog training and placement service, rescues and trains shelter dogs to become Certified Hearing Dogs for deaf and hearing impaired people.
In the 18-year history of Dogs for the Deaf, many trained Hearing Dogs have saved the lives of their deaf partners, alerting them to sounds vital to safety and independent living: a smoke alarm, a telephone, a baby's cry, or a knock at the door.
There is no charge to qualified applicants to receive a Hearing Dog. Dogs for the Deaf depends on donations to continue this special program. A dog receives veterinary care, training, and placement for only pennies a day -- pennies that will save the dog's life and quite possibly the life of a deaf person.
Please help Dogs for the Deaf rescue shelter dogs and train them to become Hearing Dogs for the deaf. For more information, please call 1-800-990-DOGS (3647). Or visit the Dogs for the Deaf web site.
You can be a life saver to a dog in an animal shelter... a dog whose future is questionable. Please send your contribution to: Dogs for the Deaf
