About Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People believes that nobody with deafness should feel alone. This is why the Charity trains dogs that help deaf people reconnect with life. The dogs provide support through constant companionship, giving deaf people confidence to reconnect with their family, friends and community, and embrace the life they want to lead. As importantly, their dogs help by alerting deaf people to life-saving sounds like the smoke alarm and intruder alarm, and important sounds such as the oven timer and baby monitor. Their burgundy coats also signal to the public that their partners are deaf. This combination of practical assistance and emotional support is life-changing and, with no government funding, each and every sponsorship is incredibly valuable.
