Vamoosh have partnered with Sheffield based charity Support Dogs UK in order to raise awareness and show continuous support for the charity.
What they do...
Support Dogs is a national charity dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children and adults with various challenging medical conditions. They provide, train and support specialist assistance dogs to achieve this.
Support Dogs specialise in three specific programmes:
- Autism assistance dogs for autistic children. The dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments.
- Seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy. Our dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable, potentially life saving alert up to 1 hour before an epileptic seizure. This enables the client to find safety and be in control over their seizure, allowing a much more independent life.
- Disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. The client’s own pet dog is trained to perform tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs, providing them with greater independence and safety.
Established in 1992, Support Dogs works across England, Scotland and Wales and provides all its services entirely free of charge to those in need of them. However, the charity relies solely on voluntary donations and receives no government funding.
