You hear company mission statements all the time. They're often referenced as rhetoric and nothing more. At Dogs For The Deaf, their powerful, passionate vision is heard loud and clear.
The goal of this renowned and reputable organization is simple: empower those who struggle with deafness or autism through the compassion and companionship of loving, nurturing dogs.
Don't let the Dogs For The Deaf name fool you, too. While this brand garners plenty of positive marks and is lauded for its long standing love affair with assistance dogs, they're also adept at allowing people to adopt pets in a traditional sense.
The web site is littered with adorable, adoptable dogs that they've cleverly tagged as "Career Change Dogs," suggesting that these pups might not have found the right home yet, but that doesn't keep them from looking.
In short, Dogs For The Deaf transcends any conventional animal shelter and rather mirrors more of a hybrid facility that focuses on at home pets and dogs destined to do great things.
Dogs For The Deaf transforms dogs rescued from animal shelters into more than just man's best friend but also a valuable asset and friend for kids on the autism spectrum, and adults and children who suffer from hearing loss or are totally deaf.
In addition, Dogs For the Deaf extend their remarkable resources beyond the aforementioned purpose and also caters to business professionals who have chosen career paths where they work with people who have disabilities.
In this instance, the dogs act as equal parts companion and calming effect. That notion is heartwarming when you consider the number of kids who suffer from autism, a condition that is associated with difficultly in controlling one's emotions as a predominant characteristic.
Often lost in the time line implemented by Dogs For The Deaf as far as training them and putting them with just the right person is the actual act of saving the dogs in the first place. Far too many dogs don't have the luxury of being rescued and given a sense of purpose or simply a good home.
Dogs For The Deaf is adept at doing both, and dog lovers definitely appreciate knowing that captured dogs could end up not only surviving but flourishing once the Dogs For The Deaf training concludes.
From a business side, Dogs For The Deaf sports a dog training level of skill and acumen that is truly showcased in the final product: a dog that exudes qualities such as pet, nurturer, helper and friend.
What this organization is doing hardly falls on deaf ears.
Plenty of celebrities and noted pet experts are more than willing to put their names next to that of Dogs For The Deaf as supporters and sponsors. Donations come in a myriad of forms, including events, fundraisers and even perusing and buying at the online shop spot on the web site.
Dogs For The Deaf no doubt recognizes that all the generosity put forth by the masses keep the two pronged approach to their plan pushing forward: rescue dogs and allow them to bring joy into lives of those in need, or just anyone looking for a little company.
Dogs For The Deaf finds itself in elite company thanks to its hard work, dedication to a worthwhile endeavor and endless vigor that is refreshing and revered. This cause was born out of a specific, innate want to give back and grow a business that takes a huge bite out of men, women and children longing for a little day to day respite from their reality.
