Volunteers' Week 2020 - Rainbow Pups

Posted by Victoria Leedham

Rainbow Pups

During these strange and difficult times, the rainbow has been a symbol of hope, strength and unity, especially when it comes to expressing gratitude for our amazing health care and other key workers.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, our volunteers have been posting heart-warming messages and pictures to our social media pages that have spread great happiness and positivity amongst the Hearing Dogs community.

Here’s a small gallery of some of our favourites...


1. Poodle puppy Peppa looks to a brighter future.

2. There was only one way to decorate the nursery for hearing dog mum Tia, who gave birth to her litter of Labrador pups during lockdown.

3. From those plaintive puppy dog eyes to the magical rainbow, this photo of Zyla went directly to our hearts.

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who have shared extra-special photos like these almost every day. These images have kept spirits lifted, spread a little happiness and brought our Hearing Dogs family even closer together.
