WATCH: Sheffield Support Dogs mark their 30th anniversary

17 March 2022

A Sheffield-based dog charity celebrated a three decade milestone of transforming lives for those in need, following the Crufts final last weekend.

Support Dogs has worked to give greater independence to adults and children with autism, epilepsy, and various physical disabilities. 

The charity shared their budding plans for this year, which include fundraisers such as the ‘Great North Run’ at South Shields in September.

The care provided by Support Dogs has been estimated to save the NHS £19m a year.

A recent survey of its clients found that 80 per cent classed their dog as their main aid for managing their condition.

Fundraising Manager, Danny Anderson, said: “On all three programmes, the difference our support dogs make is almost unquantifiable.”
