Assistance dogs improve the quality of life for countless people who live with disability or illness, and today celebrates these four-legged friends!
There are many different kinds of assistance dogs, from the well-known guide dogs and hearing alert dogs that help people with vision and hearing loss, to lesser-known helpers like seizure alert and medical alert dogs that can recognise the signs of heart attacks, strokes and epilepsy.
They are all worthy of a round of applause…and a big cuddle!
Here’s to those furry heroes. xxx
