Dogs for the Deaf pairs extraordinary dogs with people who have a variety of disabilities and challenges. We believe that every dog has value and every person should have the opportunity to feel safe and be independent regardless of their physical or sensory challenges. Our dogs are rescued, specially trained at our shelter for four to six months, and placed free of charge with clients all across the U.S. and Canada. Dogs for the Deaf provides lifetime support for every partnership we form and a lifetime commitment to each dog we rescue. In addition to Hearing Dogs, we also train dogs for children on the autism spectrum and professionals, such as teachers and doctors, who work with people with disabilities.
