Dogs for Good included in BBC Children in Need

Dogs for the Disabled have recently changed their name and brand. Now called Dogs for Good, a name which reflects how the charity can change people’s lives, the charity was featured on BBC’s 2015 Children in Need programme.


The video from Children in Need below shows some of the amazing work they do to help improve lives and communities. The video shows Sam’s story, told by the boy band One Direction, and how Dogs for Good has helped change his life.

Dogs for Good has been working to enrich and improve lives and communities since 1986. The charity explores ways dogs can help people to overcome specific challenges and provides assistance dogs to support adults and children in their homes and in the community. The charity works with people with a range of disabilities and also children with autism.

JM Finn & Co has been proud sponsors of Dogs for Good for over four years. Part of our partnership with the charity has included sponsoring two dogs through their training and socialisation, which takes two years to complete. So far we have paired with two Labradors, ‘Finn’ who has completed his training and been placed with a family, and ‘Finley’, who will be placed with someone who can benefit from his help once he has completed his training.
