Hearing Assist Dogs

Hearing Assist Dogs are often selected from local shelters. The dog alerts a person who is deaf or hard of hearing to sounds by making physical contact with them and then leading them to that sound.

  • a door knock or doorbell
  • an oven timer
  • a smoke detector
  • an alarm clock
  • an individual’s name being called
  • a phone ringing
  • the sound of an intruder
  • a baby crying

Due to the generosity of supporters like you all of our assistance dogs are provided to clients free of charge.
