By holding a Paws for Cake, you will be directly helping deaf people. People like Chloe…

Chloe, a woman smiling, wearing white top, pink patterened trousers, sits on bench with Elvis, Hearing Dog looking at her

“I can’t imagine life without Elvis.” 

Chloe works for the NHS and travels by train to work with her hearing dog Elvis. “Before I had Elvis, other commuters could get annoyed when I didn’t hear them asking me to let them past. With Elvis, they can see I’m deaf.”

Elvis also alerts Chloe to potentially life-saving sounds. “Not hearing the fire alarm was my biggest fear. Now I know Elvis will tell me if an alarm is going off.”

I’m so grateful to Hearing Dogs because I know how much work went into making him the dog he is now - my best friend!”.


Please host a Paws for Cake and help more deaf people like Chloe to leave
loneliness behind.
