Review for Canine Companions for Independence, Santa Rosa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Canine Companions for Independence for about 17 years. I sm a volunteer, a puppy raiser, and a monthly contributor. I am VERY proud to be associated with this marvelous organization that changes the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained service dogs FREE OF CHARGE. As a "dog person", someone who has not just owned dogs, but trained and competed with them, I can honestly say that their breeding program has resulted in exceptional dogs. Their commitment to their dogs is lifelong. Their efforts to insure that the puppy raiser helps the dog develop and achieve his potential are outstanding. I have seen first hand the difference these dogs make in people's lives, enabling people with disabilities to go to work, do their household tasks themselves, reach their own potential. The volunteers and puppy raisers are also a wonderful group of people who work tirelessly and cooperatively toward the common goals. Enough praise cannot be given also to the trainers and staff. I give this organization the highest rating, deservedly.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
