Canine Companions

A nonprofit organization

$10,481 Raised by 60 Donors

Canine Companions is leading the service dog industry so our clients and their dogs can live with greater independence. We provide service dogs to adults, children and veterans with disabilities and facility dogs to professionals working in healthcare, criminal justice and educational settings. Since our founding in 1975, our dogs and all follow-up services are provided at no cost to our clients.  

Independence shouldn’t be limited to those who look or live a certain way. Disability reaches all races, classes and backgrounds, and Canine Companions will too.  Clients come to Canine Companions because of our reputation, the quality of our dogs, the experience of our training staff and the desire to lead life with greater independence. We are committed to providing services to all qualified clients. 

Thanks to the generosity of thousands of volunteers, private donors, corporate partnerships and foundation partners, each recipient receives our services at no cost.  The financial value of each assistance dog from birth until the dog's retirement, is estimated at $50,000.
