Hearing dogs can save lives

Smoke alarms save lives - and so do hearing dogs.

Thousands of deaf New Zealanders can't hear the everyday sounds most of us take for granted, including telephones, doorbells, clocks and smoke alarms.

Hearing dogs are trained to alert their owners to those sounds - and their assistance can save lives.

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People New Zealand is an independent charitable trust, set up in 1998 to assess, select, train and place hearing dogs with deaf and severely hearing impaired people.
The dogs, most rescued from animal centres as pups, are trained to internationally recognised standards and are provided free to selected recipients.
The trust receives no government funding. How disgusting!!
Red Helmet Day on April 22 is the trust's biggest fundraiser of the year. Give genereously!!
