Hearing Team | High River, AB
Alise lives in High River, AB and she started losing her hearing 20 years ago. As her hearing deteriorated so did her quality of life, “I knew that in order to enjoy my life I needed some help, that’s when I turned to the Lions Foundation of Canada,” recalls Alise. She was matched with her Dog Guide Syrup and together they graduated from the Hearing Ear program.
Syrup is specially trained to alert Alise of sounds many people take for granted; a timer, traffic behind her or a phone. Syrup takes her job very seriously, Alise describes her as “silly, funny and goofy at home, when she hears an alert she drops what she is doing.”
You donation to Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides allows fellow Canadians, like Alise, to take back their lives. What do your donations mean to Alise? “Just one dollar [to Dog Guides] is a gift of independence for a person with a disability; that means the world to us.”
