We are now in June and after supporting Riviera Rescue in May, we are thrilled to have chosen International Hearing Dog Inc as our organization to support this month!
This rescue is based just outside of Denver, Colorado with a mission to rescue shelter dogs and train them to assist people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, with and without multiple disabilities, at no cost to the recipient.
Here is a little more information from the rescue themselves ' IHDI has trained more than 1,300 professionally certified Hearing Dogs since 1979 for persons with hearing loss. All of the dogs that are selected to be a part of the Hearing Dog Program come from local animal shelters and bordering states high kill shelters. The dogs are generally mixed breeds, six months to a year in age, in good health, and with aim-to-please energetic personalities '
We were lucky enough to be invited to visit the facility this week and it was such a wonderful experience that really amazed us. Not only are the facilities beautiful, but the dogs currently living there are so happy and content with their enviroment, people, and their training program it really warmed our hearts. They even tried some of our bandanas on ;)
Ashley, one of the wonderful staff members at International Hearing Dog Inc explained to us that it is not only the dogs that are saved but also the person who receives the dog at the end of their training.
It is our absolute pleasure to be supporting this rescue with 10% of each sale made this month and as much exposure for them as possible.
Please check out their website and social media pages, you will get to know the team a little better, find out more about the specifics of the training program each dog goes through and see some really cute pups faces!!
