Rescuing and professionally training dogs... assist people, enhance lives & provide greater independence is what Dogs for the Deaf is all about.

Dogs for the Deaf rescues dogs for our programs from animal shelters throughout the western United States. After professional training at our southern Oregon facility, the dogs are placed with...

  • People with a variety of disabilities and challenges including: hearing loss and deafness.
  • Full-time professionals (teachers, physicians, counselors, and other healthcare professionals) in the treatment of and work with their clients.

We place our dogs with qualified clients throughout the United States.
