COVID-19 Update: Canine Companions is taking precautions related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and has made the decision to cancel in-person graduation ceremonies. We understand that this decision may be disappointing, but we know it is in the best interest of all.

Please note: While the ceremonies are not currently taking place, we are committed to moving our mission forward and continue to place our expertly trained service dogs.
