OUR LIONS CLUB
Lions Club of Australian Hearing Dogs
The Lions Club of Australian Hearing Dogs was formed by a group of staff, friends, and volunteers, as an opportunity to provide additional support to recipients of Australian Lions Hearing Dogs.
Many recipients of Australian Lions Hearing Dogs are from low-income households and require additional support to care for their Hearing Assistance Dogs. Whilst all our dogs are provided at no cost to people who are deaf or hard of hearing, the ongoing costs of the dog are worn by the recipient, with vet fees and food costs often a burden, especially in cases of emergencies.
Our Lions Club was formed with a focus of assisting with emergency costs and providing additional support where possible. When a recipient finds themselves in a time of need or financial hardship, not only will ALHD be there to support, but the Club will assess applications for financial support.
One of the many ways we raise funds for the Club is by making snuffle mats for dogs, and selling them to the public for enrichment purposes. Our snuffle mat workshops are enjoyable for our diverse range of Volunteers, and a great opportunity to collaborate on creative projects.
As a National Lions Club, members are encouraged from across Australia to join and attend monthly meetings and other activities via video link.
