APR: National Hearing Dog Day
National Hearing Dog Day will be held for the first time on Tuesday 19th April, 2022.
On this day 40 years ago, the first Hearing Assistance Dog in Australia was delivered to someone suffering profound hearing loss.
The organisation has provided more than 650 Hearing Assistance Dogs to people who are deaf or hard of hearing across Australia, free of charge.
To mark this special occasion, they are celebrating the transformative stories of partnerships between a person who is deaf or hard of hearing, and their Hearing Assistance Dog.
