Three years ago, I was blessed enough to receive one of Dogs For the Deaf's highly trained Hearing Dogs. Since Hattie has come into my life the possibilities of my life are endless. Before Hattie came into my life, I walked through my home filled with fear and dread due to the sounds I was missing in my daily life. The severe to profound hearing loss I have does not allow me to hear the sounds in life that make everyday living a simple pleasure. I would lay awake at night consumed with fear that I would not hear the smoke detector if it were to alert me to any impending danger. I burnt many meals because I did not hear the oven timer, company rarely was greeted at the door because I failed to hear them knock. I would walk through my home with the telephone in hand with the hopes I would hear it ring if someone were to call. Now, I am no longer filled with dread and fear, thanks to Dogs for the Deaf. I often say the day Hattie was placed with me was the day my life truly began. Without Dogs for the Deaf training and placing Hearing Dogs for those of us with hearing loss the independence and peace of mind I currently posess would not be possible. By training and placing Hearing Dogs with individuals like myself, they enable us to take a disability and change it into infinite possibilities. I can sleep a peaceful nights sleep, I can eat a well cooked meal and I now know when family and friends stop by to visit. Hattie has transformed my life in ways I never knew was possible. There are truly no words to describe what an exceptional organization Dogs for the Deaf truly is and there are no words to describe what they have given to my life.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Great tour and great organization! Love that they rescue twice! Spent an hour here with four kids ages 11 and up plus grandparents and we all loved it! We are all dog lovers but we would have found this interesting either way.

This was our second time stopping here, and I am so glad we did. It was a wonderful learning experience, and I recommend coming if you are passing through, or just looking for something to do! We met spine of the dogs and she was really sweet. Very fun!

We went for the tour at Dogs for the Deaf while driving through Medford. What a wonderful place it is! I am amazed at how well the dogs are trained and how committed they are to their animals. Jenny, Kelly, and Lucy did our demo and were fantastic. We learned so much during our visit and plan to return very soon!
