About the Texas Hearning and Service Dogs:

THSD is a non-profit organization that trains Service Dogs and Hearing Dogs to assist people with disabilities.
Hearing Dogs are trained to alert their deaf owners by touch and lead them to everyday sounds, such as a door knock, smoke alarm or telephone.

Service Dogs assist individuals with physical disabilities by opening doors, fetching wheelchairs, retrieving dropped items, operating light switches, moving paralyzed limbs and getting help.

THSD adopts all of their dogs from animal shelters and rescue leagues. Utilizing positive reinforcement, they train the dogs, pair them with their new partners and then train them as teams - all free of charge to the recipients.
