As a hearing assistance dog, Kipp alerts Crystal when her dryer completes its cycle or the microwave finishes cooking a meal. Because Crystal cannot hear her alarm clock, Kipp wakes her each morning with some friendly licks. Thanks to Kipp, Crystal now leads a more independent lifestyle.
Paws With A Cause trains Assistance Dogs nationally for people with disabilities and provides lifetime team support which encourages independence. Many of the pups selected are rescue dogs like Kipp.
In recent years, Paws With A Cause have placed more than 2,300 dogs throughout the United States including: Service Dog teams, Hearing Dog teams, Seizure Response Dog Teams, and Service Dogs for Children with Autism. Paws clients are not charged a fee and are not asked to purchase their Assistance Dogs.
Each dog’s training program is customized to accommodate the unique needs of individuals with muscular dystrophy, seizure disorders, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, and many other disabilities. Currently Paws is expanding their programs to help veterans needing service dogs.
Kipp’s training was made possible through support received from GreaterGood.org and the Paws With A Cause Gift That Gives More at The Animal Rescue Site.
