Dogs for Better Lives

Dogs for Better Lives is an award-winning national 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Central Point, Oregon. Formerly known as Dogs for the Deaf, we have been providing Assistance Dogs to people across the United States since 1977. Dogs for Better Lives’ mission is to professionally train dogs to help people and enhance lives while maintaining a lifelong commitment to all dogs we rescue or breed and the people we serve.

Professional Certified trainers train and place Assistance Dogs with individuals who experience deafness or hearing loss, with children who are on the autism spectrum, and with professionals such as teachers, physicians, and licensed therapists whose students and clients can benefit from the dogs’ calming presence. Assistance Dogs from Dogs for Better Lives provide people with the support they need to live safely and independently. Dogs for Better Lives offers three Assistance Dog Programs: Autism Assistance Dogs, Hearing Assistance Dogs, and Facility Dogs.
