Since we started our program of the introduction of "assistance dogs"
and rearing activities, we received a voice from many people that they
want to widen their life together with assistance dogs who can cope with
their difficulties and lead an independent life. Responding to their request,
we studied data of dometic and overseas rearing orgnizations and started
"hearing and assistance dogs rearing program with candidates among
the rescued dogs" with the cooperation of experienced trainers, veterinarians
and medical doctors. We await consultation requests or interest in a life
with assistance dogs from the disabled people, and also await people's
offer of help and donations to this program.
In Europe and America it is popular to select suitable dogs at the animal
protection establishments and rear assistance dogs, and it is highly evaluated
from the point of view of the animal protection. It is, however, very costly
to rear assistance dogs. (about \1 million per dog). There are people who
can get great possibility if they had assistance dogs, on the other hand
there are dogs with aptitude to be assistance dogs but who are killed at
the public animal shelters. Your kind cooperation is mostly needed to save
these dogs and to help those who need assistance dogs.
