Dogs for the Deaf, Inc., rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to respond to environmental sounds such as smoke alarms, door bells, alarm clocks, baby cries, telephones, and the sound of a personís name. The dogs also are obedience-trained and socialized. They are then placed, free of charge, in the homes of deaf and hard-of-hearing applicants who live in the United States and Canada and who want and need the benefits of a professionally trained hearing dog. Professional/consumer newsletter, fact sheets, and online publications are available.
