International Hearing Dogs mission is to empower individuals who are d/Deaf and hard of hearing by purposefully training specially selected dogs to alert to sounds,  carefully matching these dogs with handlers who are deaf and hard of hearing and supporting the paired teams throughout the lifetime of the match.

Today, IHDI staff and volunteers have trained more than 1,350 dogs to assist individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing. These dogs have found homes in all 50 states of the United States and Canada. IHDI has also helped start independent Hearing Dog programs in Japan, Norway, and Australia. It is based in Colorado and is suported by Lions.
