EMPOWER ASSISTANCE DOGS
We are dedicated to profoundly impacting the lives of individuals with disabilities.
Our mission revolves around enhancing the quality of life and fostering independence for people facing various challenges. We achieve this through our rigorous program, meticulously selecting, nurturing, and professionally training government-certified hearing and assistance dogs.
Their unique ability to serve as more than just companions sets our assistance dogs apart. They act as invaluable partners in daily life, empowering their handlers to maintain high independence. Our dogs become vigilant ears for those with hearing impairments, ensuring they never miss important cues. Likewise, for individuals facing physical or mental challenges, our dogs are steadfast allies in performing everyday tasks, allowing them to retain their self-reliance.
At Empower Assistance Dogs, we strongly believe in the profound power of partnership. Our dogs become an extension of their handlers’ families, offering assistance, companionship, friendship, and a source of boundless joy.
We invite you to join us in making a meaningful difference. Together, we can create a world where abilities shine brighter than disabilities, and each day represents a significant step towards a brighter future.

Ways you can help
At Empower Assistance Dogs, we are dedicated to the breeding, raising, and training of Hearing, Assistance and Therapy dogs. This is a highly labour-intensive endeavour that typically spans 1.5 to 2 years and involves a financial investment ranging from $25,000 to $55,000, depending on the specific requirements of the individual dog.
We want to emphasise that we do not receive any government funding. Instead, we rely solely on the generosity of individuals, businesses, and organisations to support our mission.”
