Learn how Hyundai Help for Kids is supporting Assistance Dogs Australia.
As part of Hyundai Help for Kids’ renewed agreement with Assistance Dogs Australia, HHFKs will be sponsoring a puppy through his two years of training and development to become a fully-fledged assistance dog. The name of this adorable pup was chosen by the HHFKs Facebook community, who were involved in a competition to give this little cutie the perfect Hyundai inspired name. HHFK received over 1,200 entries via Facebook over a 5-day period and landed on the adorable name: NEXO.
A nod to Hyundai’s first zero-emission hydrogen-powered electric vehicle and commitment to a more sustainable, earth-conscious future. We hope this little pup is just as smart, innovative and forward thinking as the NEXO vehicle.
It’s thanks to this partnership as well as other sponsors and donations that Assistance Dogs Australia can continue to do the work they do. Assistance Dogs Australia trains and places unique dogs with Australians in unique situations. ADA currently train dogs that specialise in support for people with a physical disability, autism or PTSD. As well as providing a range of services to these individuals and their families. ADA’s free-to-client assistance dogs provide independence, self-esteem, improved health and relationships to individuals and families – resulting in stronger and more successful communities.
Hyundai Help for Kids is the Australian part of Hyundai Motor Company’s global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, ‘Moving The World Together’.
