Canine Companions for Independence
January 9, 2014

Besides being a NER Board of Directors Member for CCI, I am raising my second puppy for them. I cannot think of a better way to serve the community. By volunteering for this wonderful organization I get to see first hand what these exceptional dogs can do for adults and children with a disability. It's by far the greatest joy to witness the remarkable difference it makes in a persons life. Each Recipient receives his/her dog free of charge too!!!! Bravo to CCI for all that they do to help give a person with a disability the independence to live life to the fullest by providing their highly trained assistance dogs. I'm honored to be on the Northeast Regional Board Member and thrilled to be raising another miracle for them.

I have been volunteering for CCI for four Years now. In all my years of volunteering, and believe me, I have done a great deal of volunteering throughout the years...from holding an officers position on the PTA to Founding two organizations....CCI is by far the most well run non profit organization I have ever encountered in all my years of volunteering. From the top administrators, managers and Coordinators to their volunteer base CCI prides itself on the highest of standards. As a Puppy Raiser, currently raising my second, I have taken away some valuable lessons, not only for my Puppies in Training but my own pets. I can attest to their dedication to helping and supporting their puppy raisers as well as graduate teams. I have gone on many Demonstrations with my Puppy in Training with several graduate Teams and witness how well taken care of their highly trained assistance dogs are... From the health of the dog to keeping up with the commands, CCI makes sure their Puppies in Training and Graduate Teams continue to reach the highest of standards. I am passionate about the success of Canine Companions and I'm dedicated to their mission of providing "Exceptional Dogs for Exceptional People."
