Off and Running in2017

Canine Companions for Independence placed an all-time high of 366 assistance dogs in 2016.  On the heels of that accomplishment, Canine Companions has held Team Trainings and graduation ceremonies in all six of the organizations regional centers in 2017.  We're far from finished.  Team Training lasts two weeks, and it is during this time that a student is matched with an assistance dog (Skilled Companion, Service, Facility or Hearing).  Hearing Dog classes are held separately.  In addition, the organization continues to be involved in a study with the VA.  In this study, Veterans with PTSD are placed with a service dog.

More than 400 people are on the waiting list to receive a highly trained assistance dog.  The contributions we receive enable us to provide our assistance dogs free of charge to adults, veterans and children with disabilities.   Canine Companions is grateful for the continued support that helps make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
