Ashley - Lions Hearing Dogs

Lions Hearing Dogs

Australian Lions Hearing Dogs was conceived in 1980 when two past District Governors Bob Allen and Brian Carter attending an International Convention in the USA discovered the Hearing Dogs in Colorado. At the Multiple District Convention in Canberra the Lions Club of Australia voted to fund this project.

A property was acquired at Verdun in the Adelaide Hills. Gale Gould from the American program came out for two years to start the project.

Since the program’s inception hearing dogs have been delivered to deaf and hard of hearing people nationwide as a gift from the Lions Clubs of Australia. Currently there are Australian Lions Hearing Dogs assisting their owners in every State and Territory in Australia. See more at the website!
