Can you imagine if a dog could detect an illness well before we had any idea there was a problem and reduce the need for intrusive, unpleasant and expensive diagnostic tests?
Well for over 10 years, Medical Detection Dogs, a world-leading, innovative charity, has been training dogs to do just that; to save lives using their amazing sense of smell.
It does this through Medical Alert Assistance Dogs and Bio Detection Dogs, both of which can be trained to detect even the tiniest trace of the smell caused by a medical condition.
And now, thanks to a generous donation by the players of The People’s Postcode Lottery, we are making a paw-print near you!
For the first time there are regional staff in this area so the charity can start to increase people’s knowledge of it’s life-saving work. We would love to recruit some volunteers to spread the word in and around the Hull, Yorkshire and Humber area, however they may be able to help, whether it’s at events, online or by giving talks.
