Assistance Dogs of Hawaii has been providing Assistance Dogs, free of charge, to residents of Hawaii for the past 14 years. In addition to Service Dogs for the physically disabled, our full-time Hospital Facility Dogs benefit hundred of patients on Oahu every day: Tucker at Kapi’olani Medical Center, Yoda at Queen’s Cancer Clinic, and Angel at Rehab Hospital of the Pacific. Courthouse Dog Pono works full-time at the Honolulu Prosecutor’s office helping children who are victims of crime through the difficult legal process.
Our Community Outreach Programs benefit hundreds of people with special needs each week. These include the Wounded Warrior Program for veterans with disabilities and PTSD and the Therapy Dog Program for people at hospitals, nursing homes, and homeless shelters.
Assistance Dogs of Hawaii is also a leader in Medical Scent Detection Research. We recently completed a groundbreaking research study with Kapi’olani Medical Center and Clinical Labs of Hawaii, where dogs were trained to detect early stages of life-threatening infections in people with disabilities. Our next study will be in partnership with the Rehab Hospital of the Pacific and will be the first study of its kind to be conducted in a hospital setting.
Thank you for your consideration of partnership as an event sponsor or attending the event as a ticket holder.
Your donation will help us in our mission of improving the lives of residents of Hawaii with physical disabilities and developing the untapped potential that dogs have to help people in need.
