Thames Valley Police officers have lent their support to national charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People this Christmas by encouraging the public to sponsor a hearing dog puppy.
The Change a Life, Sponsor a Puppy Christmas campaign invites people to sponsor a hearing dog puppy for a loved one this Christmas.
The charity receives many requests from deaf people every year for a hearing dog due to the life-changing benefits a partnership can bring. Puppy sponsorship plays a key role in the continued development of this vital service.
PCSO Claire Davis said: “We are delighted to sponsor a puppy and it was great to meet hearing dog puppies Anya and Tamsin at the police station. We are looking forward to receiving our puppy sponsorship updates and photos, and finding out how our puppy in training is getting along over the next 18 months!
“Anyone can sponsor a hearing dog puppy as a gift for a loved one, and the best part of this Christmas present is that you will also be changing the life of a deaf person.”
People can sponsor hearing dog puppies Merry and Berry from £3 a month and each welcome pack includes a certificate, photos and other gifts. Visit www.hearingdogs.org.uk/puppy or call 01844 348100.
