Helpers is a community support organisation that provides assistance to people with a disability through the training and placement of different types of assistance dogs, including:
- Service Dogs for people with physical disabilities;
- Hearing Dogs for people who are hearing impaired;
- Therapy Dogs for people with many other types of disabilities;
- Facility dogs which work in Special Schools and other group settings.
Canine Helpers is the first non-profit organisation accredited under the new Queensland Legislation as a Certified Assistance Dog Training Organisation.
Canine Helpers provides an individually tailored program so that each client receives an Assistance Dog that is perfectly suited to their needs. We provide a highly specialized service to the disabled community and it is the only one of its kind in Brisbane.
While we strive to offer our services to those who need them throughout Australia, current funding levels limit us to South East Queensland at this time.
