Hachiko vzw - Training assistance dogs for people with a disability

Thanks to Frieke Fransoo

A donation of € 1.000

Hachiko vzw changes lives by training assistance dogs and placing them with people with a physical disability or epilepsy. Their tail-wagging assistants gladly help their human companions every day, making various tasks possible for them once again. The emotional support they offer is also invaluable. Hachiko doesn’t want a person’s financial situation to be a threshold to applying for an assistance dog, so they donate their tail-wagging assistants for free. A fully trained assistance dog, including life-long support, costs the association approximately EUR 25,000. Hachiko relies on sponsors and donations from people who, like them, believe that the added value an assistance dog provides is priceless.
