Hear No Evil' Australian Deaf Dog Rescue was founded in Townsville QLD in late 2014 and was set up specifically to give deaf dogs the second chances they deserve. Although, we are a relatively small organisation, we have very big hopes regarding the welfare of animals.
'Hear No Evil' are a Australia's leading rescue and re-homing group for deaf and special need dogs. We are considered a No Kill rescue, that means we Do Not Euthanse dogs for space or because they have been in care too long, nor because they are deemed un-appealing to adopt.
We have a duty of care for each animal we take in as well as our carers, volunteers and the public. The only circumstances for euthanasia in our rescue is if the dog is considered mentally, or physically unsound, and this is only after professional advice from both a Qualified Dog trainer/behaviours AND a practicing Veterinarian. It is not a decision taken lightly, and it is never done in haste.
We strongly believe in Quality of life, and we give every dog in our care the best chance they can to overcome any behaviour or medical issues in order to live Happy, Healthy, Safe lives.
We use positive training methods of incorporating basic easy to learn hand signals to ensure our dogs have basic manners and training prior to adoption. All our dogs come desexed, microchipped and vaccinated before being adopted, as well as flea/tick treated and wormed while in our care.
We offer ongoing support to any adopting families for life. ‘Hear No Evil’ even have a partnership with an assortment of dog trainers around the country to help sort out any unwanted and unhealthy behaviours.
At ‘Hear No Evil’ we don't just rescue and rehome, we provide information and advice to anyone who has a deaf dogs, and also to those people who may be interested or considering adopting a deaf dog.
Hear No Evil would not exist without the tireless support of our dedicated volunteers and foster carers but we can always use more help. If you wish to get involved in any way, please contact ‘Hear No Evil’, there is always something you can do.
Hear No Evil is a registered charity.
