Medical Detection Dogs trains dogs to detect the odour of human disease. It is at the forefront of the research into the fight against cancer and helping people with life-threatening diseases. Our Bio-Detection Dogs are trained to find the odour of diseases, such as cancer. Our Medical Alert Assistance Dogs are trained to detect minute changes in an individual’s personal odour triggered by their disease and alert them to an impending medical event. We receive no government funding for the work we do and rely entirely on the generosity of donations from trusts and the public.
If you have very little spare time, but would still like to make a BIG difference to the charity, you could help us as a Collection Box Coordinators – assisting in placing collection boxes with local businesses in Aberdeen or become a Leaflet Distributor – distributing literature and display posters in places that are local to you.
Excellent support is provided to all volunteers including: *Induction *Regular and ongoing support from Medical Detection Dogs and Regional Fundraisers *Payment of out of pocket expenses *Invitation to an awareness/speaker training day *Shadowing and training opportunities and peer support from Regional Fundraisers and Regional Coordinator.
A fantastic opportunity to help – all volunteers make a real difference and are greatly appreciated.
