Lions Hearing Dogs is a not-for-profit organisation that provides hearing dogs and training in their use to hearing impaired people throughout Australia. Dogs and follow-up support are provided free of charge.
We’ve supplied nearly 500 dogs Australia-wide since 1982.
We have an executive officer, a head trainer and four trainers, an assistant trainer, a kennel manager and two kennel staff.
We do not have volunteers at our centre, but new owners are supported by their sponsoring Lions club when they receive their dogs.
Our training centre in the Adelaide Hills is on six acres that contains all the kennels and training facilities. Visit our centre and see how our hearing dogs work.
Our management board
The organisation is overseen by a volunteer management board, which in turn reports to the Australian Lions Multiple District Council of Governors.
