Abstract

Dogs for the Deaf, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that rescues and professionally trains dogs to assist people and enhance lives. The organization selects Hearing Dogs -- usually mixed breeds, small to medium in size, and 6 to 36 months of age -- from adoption shelters, trains them and places them with qualified individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. Dogs are also trained and placed with children and families living with autism and people who are in need of emotional support or have other special needs. All dogs rescued are trained, placed and followed up on free of charge.
