Dogs for the Deaf

Dogs for the Deaf (DFD) was founded in 1977 by the late Roy G. Kabat, a long-time Hollywood and circus animal trainer who raised animals for motion pictures and television shows including "Dr. Doolittle" and "Born Free." His daughter, Mrs. Robin Dickson, is his successor and the current CEO/President of Dogs for the Deaf.

Hearing Dogs are chosen from adoption shelters, where they might otherwise be euthanized if no homes are found for them. By using shelter dogs we are able to help alleviate some of the unwanted dog population by rescuing these dogs, training them, and placing them in loving homes where they can provide an important service.
