As Vincent shares his incredible story about companionship, love, and happiness through his service dog, it's important to remember that this is an option for everyone! Through "Dogs For Better Lives", you could find yourself a dog too. Hearing dogs are trained to alert their owners to common sounds like doorbells, oven timers, smoke alarms, telephones, babies’ cries, or alarm clocks. Hearing dogs make physical contact with their masters, nudging or pawing them to get their attention. In order for this program to continue giving dogs to people in need, they are asking for small donations to ensure that this remains free for clients! Click here to donate!
