By taking part in the Big Summer of Fundraising you will be helping people like Graham…

A man smiling at the camera as a black and white dog wearing a burgundy hearing dog neckerchief looks off to the side.

“Losing my hearing was scary. It made me feel unsafe, I couldn’t follow conversations easily and I became more introverted as a result. My hearing dog Jovi has changed all that. He alerts me to sounds and he’s a huge part of my family. He’s made me feel more accepting, and even proud, of my hearing loss. I can’t imagine my life without him. My wife Anna and I now have a little girl, and it’s comforting to know Jovi can alert me to a baby’s cry and will add to the safety and security of our household.”
