The mission of Early Alert Canines (EAC) is to improve the health, safety, and well-being of people with insulin-dependent diabetes through partnerships with certified low blood sugar alert dogs.
EAC trains and provides Medical Alert Service Dogs to people who experience life-threatening blood sugar swings due to insulin-dependent diabetes. We have built our organization from a diverse community of clients, staff, volunteers, partners, and donors, representing different races, religions, ethnicities, ages, and gender identities. All EAC clients share the challenge of managing a life-threatening disease, and it's our privilege to provide them with individualized support to improve their quality of life. We cultivate a non-judgmental and welcoming environment focused on helping each client feel supported and celebrated for what makes them unique. Early Alert Canines' diabetic alert dogs provide real and measurable help for diabetics. Hypoglycemia is an inevitable and acute side-effect of insulin therapy that can lead to severe medical problems including coma and death, so it is imperative for diabetics to receive the earliest warning possible when their blood glucose is dropping.
