Please note we are no longer accepting applications to rehome one of our dogs at this time. This may change in the future so please feel free to check back in due course. If you have mild or moderate hearing loss, one of our companion dogs may be right for you.

Rehoming a withdrawn or retired dog
We aim for all our special dogs to go on to help people with hearing loss. The vast majority do, but a small number of dogs would better suit being a pet rather than assisting someone with hearing loss.
It's really important to us that our dogs are given a life that is best suited to them. Sometimes a dog isn’t suitable to assist someone with hearing loss, for a variety of reasons, but would thrive in a loving home as a pet dog.
Rehoming one of our dogs
If you are looking to rehome a dog and can provide a loving and stable environment, please get in touch.
Our dogs are bred and trained to work as hearing dogs, sound support dogs, or companion dogs. Sometimes however, a dog may have certain personality, behavioural or health characteristics that mean they would be much better suited to living a life as a pet dog instead.
Generally, the dogs we rehome are between the ages of 16 months to around three years, and are Cocker Spaniels, Labradors, Miniature Poodles and Cockapoos.
Rehoming a retired hearing dog
Our hearing dogs get a well-deserved retirement at around 11 years old, and usually their deaf partner will keep them as a pet dog. However, occasionally we need to find a new home for them, so if you’re looking to rehome an older dog, this could be something to consider.
Why rehome from Hearing Dogs?
You'll get detailed information on your dog’s health and behaviour, their training, their likes and dislikes, the best food for them, and everything else you’ll need to provide the very best home for your new family member.
If you have any level of hearing loss, such as mild or moderate hearing loss in one or both ears, you may be right for a Confidence and Companion dog. Find out more about these dogs here.
If you can offer your time as a volunteer to help train a hearing dog puppy or foster a hearing dog mum or dad, take a look at our volunteering page here.
