MEDICAL DETECTION DOGS
Launceston Rotary supporting Medical Detection Dogs.
Medical Detection Dogs Fighting Covid-19
Medical Detection Dogs trains dogs to detect the odour of human disease with the aim of developing faster, more efficient and less invasive diagnostics that lead to better patient outcomes.
We are at the forefront of the research into the fight against cancer and other life-threatening diseases, including Parkinson’s disease and bacterial infections. Our Bio Detection Dogs are trained to find the odour of those diseases in samples such as urine, breath and sweat and our work has the potential to benefit millions.
Most recently we are working with Durham University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in training dogs to identify carriers of Covid 19 in the early stages. The dogs will be able to identify carriers who need to be tested before signs show, and may be used at airports.
We take the welfare of our Medical Detection Dogs extremely seriously. From the moment they come to us as puppies we ensure the highest standards of care for our dogs. We have a strict no kennel policy and all our dogs live in the homes of our staff or fantastic local volunteers where they are loved and cared for as part of the family.
We rely on the generosity of our supporters, charitable trusts and foundations and members of the public to fund our life-saving work. We are honoured to have the Duchess of Cornwall as our patron.
Our fundraising target is: £1500
Gross monies raised so far: £33
Supporters so far: 4
