Mission of our organization

Our organization mission is an integration of handicapped people into the society and their team, to let them come back into the active life, to involve them into educational and/or working processes, to expand options of their self-care, to gain more self-sufficiency, independence, self-confidence, freedom and safety. All this we achieve just through one source – the help of specially trained dogs included into the project The Help comes on four feet.

Who are we?

Helppes is the first professional non-profit organization of its kind in the Czech Republic that is a registered provider of social services. Helppes helps to people with different types of handicap on their way to the integration, self-care and self-independence through specially trained dogs. Helppes provides complex range of related services – starting by a training of the applicant for a specially trained dog, followed by client´s thorough education, by handing over the dog and by synchronizing the client and his/her dog, up to the after-service throughout the whole dog´s active duty life. Helppes provides all its services by a professional team consisting not only of specialists in dogs training, but at the same time of workers in social services that underwent a vocational training for work with disabled people.

Services are provided on the basis of an Agreement on providing of social services according to the Social Services Act as well as Standards for providing of social services that correspond both to the Czech an international standards and therefore place the highest demands on all employees, workmates and volunteers. Dogs’ training is supervised by Zuzana Daušová – the long-term holder of a Golden Badge “the First-degree Model Instructor”, an International Master of Austria and Slovakia in dogs’ performance, winner of many national and international dogs’ competitions.

Helppes is the only holder of Delta Society organization´ Certificate in the Czech Republic.
