Disability Survey: 2013 - New Zealand Department of Statistics

In 2013 24% of New Zealanders' identified as having a physical disability. 

How do we meet this need?

According to the Statistics New Zealand nearly a quarter of all New Zealanders live with some form of impairment. Our dogs are  primarily partnered with people with long term physical disabilities.  They also assist people in long term residential care, schools, physical therapy environments, prisons, and rest homes.   We provide dogs for a variety of conditions such as, but not exclusive to:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Spinal Injury as the result of an accident
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Parkinson’s
  • Stroke

Our dogs predominantly provide assistance to people in wheelchairs, however we also provide dogs for people who require assistance with balance,  bracing support, or loss of function.

 

Mission Statement

To enhance the lives of people living with physical disabilities, increasing independence, confidence, self esteem and participation in New Zealand communities.

Mobility Dogs is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults with whom we work. We expect all of our employees and volunteers to fully share this commitment.
