Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence (LPCCI)

Lions Club participation dates back to Canine Companions’ very beginnings in the mid-1970s. Lions and Lionesses in Northern California were the first volunteers recruited by Canine Companions to serve as puppy raisers and breeder caretakers. Interest grew and the Lions Project was born in 1983 to coordinate and support efforts of Lions, Lioness and Leo Clubs across the United States through a Club Membership and volunteer program. Through the support and donations from clubs across 26 states in the nation, LPCCI has donated over $4 million to Canine Companions.

LPCCI provides a wide range of awards that honor individuals and club members while making donations. For more information on becoming involved or awards, please contact:
