Dogs for Better Lives

Mission Statement

Dogs for Better Lives is an award-winning national 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Central Point, Oregon. Formerly known as Dogs for the Deaf, we have been providing Assistance Dogs to people across the United States since 1977. Dogs for Better Lives’ mission is to professionally train dogs to help people and enhance lives while maintaining a lifelong commitment to all dogs we rescue or breed and the people we serve.

Professional Certified trainers train and place Assistance Dogs with individuals who experience deafness or hearing loss, with children who are on the autism spectrum, and with professionals such as teachers, physicians, and licensed therapists whose students and clients can benefit from the dogs’ calming presence. Assistance Dogs from Dogs for Better Lives provide people with the support they need to live safely and independently. Dogs for Better Lives offers three Assistance Dog Programs: Autism Assistance Dogs, Hearing Assistance Dogs, and Facility Dogs. 

Why Donate to Dogs for Better Lives?

All dogs are placed at no cost to the recipient, which means people from all backgrounds can apply for these life-changing Service Dogs. Dogs for Better Lives continues to be thoughtful stewards of our donor’s dollars, and 100% of every dollar raised goes towards programmatic services. Administrative and fundraising expenses are full funded by our endowment, made possible by the past generosity of our Guardian Society members. Accepting cryptocurrency is one more way we can serve our donors and connect our programs with those most in need.

There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.
