For nearly twenty years, Canine Companions and Eukanuba have been dedicated to our mutual commitment to provide the very best nutrition to our dogs through all stages of life. Together we’ve developed an understanding of the relationship between nutrition, cognition and longevity in Canine Companions puppies and assistance dogs. We've partnered to increase awareness of volunteer puppy raising and our mission to provide assistance dogs for people with disabilities. In 2017 Eukanuba increased their commitment to Canine Companions by partnering with us in our Give Independence - Give a Dog a Job call to action campaign.
As the National Strategic Partner of Canine Companions, Eukanuba has sponsored the 2012 Extraordinary E Litter, the 2014 Hero Litter, the 2016 Extraordinary E Puppies and in 2017 they are sponsoring a video highlighting our partnership and the journey from puppy to assistance dog.
Building on an initial $300,000 donation to Canine Companions for Independence in honor of the retailer's 20th Birthday in 2017, Build-A-Bear® and Build-A-Bear Foundation™ continue to increase their commitment to Canine Companions by leading national fundraising campaigns to help provide even more service dogs to children and adults with disabilities. This year we are pleased to partner with Build-A-Bear in two great projects: The Hugs N Hope™ campaign, and naming and following a Canine Companions puppy.
