Support Dogs is national charity dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children and adults affected by epilepsy, autism and physical disabilities such as MS and Cerebral Palsy.
Autism assistance dogs for children with autism. 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, up to 50 minute warning prior to the onset of 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.
A quarter of the dogs we train come to us from rescue center or as unwanted pets.
Our services are provided entirely free of charge. We receive no government funding and rely 100% on donations to continue our work. 1 in 3 support dogs only exist thanks to donations left in the wills of those who care about our work.
