We are raising funds to help provide children, veterans, and adults with disabilities assistance dogs to help them perform every day activities.
Canine Companions for Independence trains dogs on over 40 commands to open doors, pick up dropped items and much more. Canine Companions for Independence trains four different types of assistance dogs. Service dogs for those with physical disabilities who perform daily tasks are able to pick up dropped phones, pull wheelchairs, open doors among many other commands. Hearing dogs alert their partners who are deaf or hard of hearing to important sounds such as an alarm clock or other daily needs. Facility dogs work with clients with special needs to build up a comfortable surrounding so that they can exceed expectations. Skilled companions enhance independence for children and adults with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities. “We always knew dogs were a man’s best friend, but it is truly amazing to see what these animals are able to do. They provide hope and freedom for many individuals and we are inspired by their passion.”
We are raising funds to support Canine Companions so that they can continue to change lives free of charge.
