BENEFITING: Canine Assistants, Inc.
Canine Assistants is an organization that turns your world up-side-down, giving you a more independent life, relief, those extra two paws, and all the love in the world. Training labs (stamina), golden retrievers (companionship), and standard poodles (smarts), to be service dogs, they have changed over 1,000 lives. I was fortunate enough to receive a golden-doodle in November, 2010 to help me with seizures. Her wet nose and wagging tail have my back 24/7 and instead of waking up to a stranger with a medic bag, I wake up to a cute face, curly lox, and big puppy paws on me making sure I'm okay. She's taken away the fear of being alone, the humiliation of a seizure, and given me the comfort by knowing there is someone there for me that can get my medication and go for help.
Canine Assistants has their own breeding program, veterinary clinic, and has a two week doggy camp giving you a new life. These furry creatures aren't just a helping paw, but they are your best friends, someone you can't live without, or keep out of sight. www.canineassistants.org
