The Lions Hearing Dog Program, one of the programs of the Lions Club of Albany Creek and other Lions Clubs across the country, is now also training medical dogs to assist people with diabetes. This is in addition to training dogs that assist the hearing impaired.

The Lions Hearing Dog Program trains and sends dogs to hearing impaired recipients across different cities and towns in Australia, including right here in Albany Creek.

With the expansion of the program scope to cover support dogs for diabetes sufferers, these life-changing dogs are now making a greater difference to those who need them nationwide.

The Albany Creek Lions Club meets twice monthly for club events and initiatives: the first Wednesday of the month at the Albany Creek Library, and the third Wednesday at the Hornets Football Club. 

If you or someone you know could benefit from receiving an assistance dog, please contact the Albany Creek Lions Club. They will see what can be done to help.
