Canine Companions for Independence
March 17, 2010
I have been involved with many nonprofits in the past, and CCI has been by far the best. I am a Volunteer Puppy Raiser. I have been raising Maude II for more than a year now, taking care of her on a daily basis, making sure she's healthy, and teaching her the 30 basic commands. CCI has been incredibly supportive, giving me monthly feeback and answering questions as they arise within the day. Everyone I have met both locally and at our regional office in Oceanside, CA, has been kind, helpful and dedicated to excellence. I have had such a wonderful experience that I've applied to raise a second puppy and cannot wait for his/her arrival. I can't say enough good about CCI...they are truly a wonderful organization.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
that everyone is giving and genuine.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
incredible! These people take on the care and training of a puppy for over a year and shoulder the expenses themselves so someone can get a service dog. CCI is the only organization I'm aware of that gives these dogs without charge to those in need.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
raise and train more service dogs, improving the lives of many more people with disabilities.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every week
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I am raising a puppy that will hopefully graduate and become a service dog for someone in need.
