Our Mission: The New Zealand Epilepsy Assist Dog Trust was formed to help people living with severe Epilepsy in NZ feel safe and independen
Once placed with their recipient these dogs enable people with severe epilepsy to live their every day lives independently and confidently. The positive effects of having a well-trained service dog that can go anywhere with their new owner can be life changing.
We currently have 16 Epilepsy Assist Dogs placed with people with severe Epilepsy throughout New Zealand.
We run solely on donations as these incredible dogs are trained by our trainers and then placed into homes free of charge to people in need. To continue the work we do we rely on the support of the community.
