The Sam Simon Foundation Blog is a place where we share our views on Adoptable Dogs, our Hearing Dogs program, dogs for Veterans program and general information about what's happening in and around the Sam Simon Foundation.
Hearing Dogs are specially trained to alert people who are deaf or hard of hearing to common household sounds such as door knocks, telephones, and smoke alarms. We carefully match our Hearing Dogs with qualifying applicants living in Central and Southern California, Western Nevada and Western Arizona free of training costs.
Home Hearing Dogs are ideal for kids or adults with a severe to profound hearing loss. Certified Hearing Dogs also have training to be helpful outside the home such as in a workplace.
