The Change a Life, Sponsor a Puppy Christmas campaign invites the public to sponsor a hearing dog puppy for a loved one this Christmas. The charity receives many requests from deaf people every year for a hearing dog due to the life changing benefits a partnership can bring. Puppy sponsorship plays a key role in the continued development of this vital service and Thames Valley Police were delighted to lend their support to the charity’s important Christmas fundraising cause. Members of the Thames Valley Police team, policemen and women took some time out to pose with two adorable Hearing Dog puppies currently in training to become fully qualified hearing dogs.

Claire Davis, Police Community Support Officer said: “Thames Valley Police are delighted to sponsor a puppy and it was great to meet hearing dog puppies Anya and Tamsin at the police station. We are looking forward to receiving our puppy sponsorship updates and photos, and finding out how our puppy in training is getting along over the next eighteen months!

“Anyone can sponsor a hearing dog puppy as a gift for a loved one, and the best part of this Christmas present is that you will also be changing the life of a deaf person.”

Each hearing dog puppy goes through eighteen months of training to learn to respond to sounds such as the alarm clock, doorbell and smoke alarm. Once fully qualified, that hearing dog will go on to transform a deaf person’s life by offering life-changing independence, confidence and companionship.

The public can sponsor hearing dog puppies Merry and Berry from just £3 a month and each welcome pack includes a certificate, gorgeous photos, and other exciting gifts. Sponsors donating £5 or more per month will also receive a cute and cuddly soft hearing dog toy.

To find out more about sponsoring a puppy, visit www.hearingdogs.org.uk/puppy or call Hearing Dogs for Deaf People on 01844 348100.
