Canine Companions for Independence Sponsorship

How do Canine Companions for Independence assistance dogs make a difference in the lives of adults and children with disabilities?  We'll let our graduates do the talking.

“Tatiana has changed my life in every sense of the word,” Cristina explains.

“Sherlock is a bridge to our clients’ success,” Kristen shares about Canine Companions Facility Dog Sherlock.

“Kane helps me by opening doors and pickingthings up off the ground for me,” Vijay says. “He helps me get things to my lap level rather than me having to bend over to pick them up.”

Those quotes come from three of the more than 1,850 active Canine Companions for Independence graduates. Since we first opened our doors in 1975, more than 4,200 assistance dogs have been placed.   

Every Canine Companions graduate receives their assistance dog and allgraduate follow-up services free of
charge.  It’s made possible by people like you who provide the gift of independence to the adults and children served by Canine Companions.

As we enter the fourth quarter of 2013, we are optimistic that we’ll again reach our assistant dog placement goal.  200 assistance dogs have been placed already this year, and we’re not done.  Our Northwest, Southwest, North Central, Northeast and Southeast Regional centers will all hold Team Training classes this fall.  On November 8, all five centers will hold graduation ceremonies.

To learn more about Canine Companions for Independence, we invite you to visit us at cci.org.  If you know of someone who could benefit from having an assistance dog, please encourage them to learn about us, and if we're the right fit, apply for an assistance dog.
