Canine Companions Turns 40

On July 4, Canine Companions for Independence celebrates 40 years of providing highly trained assistance dogs and follow-up services free of charge to children, adults and veterans with disabilities.  In four decades, over 4,700 assistance dogs have been placed, including over 160 in 2015.  There are 2,000 active graduate teams today.

In 2015, we have already held 16 Team Trainings and graduation ceremonies.  We're on tract to reach, and likely exceed our placement goal again this year.  In addition, we've held numerous puppy raising work shops and volunteer appreciation events.  Our volunteers mean so much to us, as we couldn't do what we do without the support of over 3,000 volunteers across the country.

Our sixth center, located in Irving, Texas is under construction.  We anticipate that our newest center will be open in the fall.  The new center will afford us the opportunity to serve people with disabilities in the state of Texas.

We're spreading the word about our organization in a number of ways, and are reaching out to more people through our DogFest Walk 'n Rolls, which are being held throughout the country.  To learn more about DogFest and how you can participate, visit us at cci.org.

Bari, a four time Canine Companions graduate shared "Having a dog by my side makes me feel like I really can do anything." 

We look forward to helping more people like Bari in 2015 and beyond.
