NEADS (National Education for Assistance Dog Services) (also known as Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans), is a non-profit organization that was established in 1976 to provide canine assistance for people who are deaf or have a disability. These assistance dogs become an extension of their handlers and bring freedom, physical autonomy and relief from social isolation to their human partners.
NEADS has trained over 1,300 assistance dog teams since 1976. NEADS offers a wide spectrum of assistance dog services, including: canines for combat veterans; dogs for children with a physical disability; dogs that help parents “halt” children in an emergency situation; hearing dogs for people who are deaf or have hearing loss; service dogs for people with physical disabilities; dogs for the classroom, therapy and ministry; and dogs for children with autism.
Dr. Castellani is proud to share that his dog, Mighty, is the FB front for NEADS and is pictured here when he was a puppy-in-training. Unfortunately, Mighty did not make it all the way through NEADS training due to alert barking.
Please feel free to share and invite anyone whom you think may be interested in this event.
