Dogs For The DeafDo you know:

  • a family with an autistic child?
  • a professional (counselor, physician, therapist, courtroom advocate) who works with   patients/clients with autism, stroke, trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, or other challenges or disabilities?
  • someone with significant hearing loss?
  • someone who has depression, anxiety/panic attacks, severe arthritis, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the effects of a stroke, or other challenges or disabilities?

If you do, you can help Dogs for the Deaf help these people by telling them about our professionally trained dogs that can provide life-saving and life-enhancing services to people with a variety of disabilities and challenges.
