Today, NEADS offers the widest array of Service Dog programs in the industry, while still holding true to our core mission of producing Service Dogs for individuals with disabilities. We are proud of our reputation as a pioneer, leader, and innovator.

Our dogs are highly trained to:

  • Provide independence and companionship when matched with people who are deaf or have physical disabilities, and also certain veterans who have PTSD

  • Provide integrated therapeutic assistance when matched with caring professionals in settings like classrooms, hospitals, courthouses, mental health practices, and the ministryWe are a national nonprofit organization geared towards helping people with a disability or hearing loss.
