This Independence Day was also Canine Companions® 45th anniversary! Our organization has experienced tremendous growth over the years, but our mission has never wavered. Our dogs have increased independence for people with a range of disabilities from hearing loss to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Our expertly trained dogs are always ready to perform commands specific to their graduate’s needs. Whether it is alerting to a sound, picking up a dropped item or PTSD nightmare interruption, our grads can rely on their trusted canine 24/7.
“Sometimes I need a reminder that things are ok. Gavin provides that reminder,” shares veteran Ken Breen with Service Dog Gavin. Canine Companions is eager to continue changing lives and serving even more people over the next 45 years.
