Wounded Veteran Initiative
Canine Companions for Independence has provided many assistance dogs to US war veterans across the country. With the increase in wounded veterans who could benefit from an assistance dog, we want to do more. For a veteran making a new start putting their life back together from an injury, an assistance dog can provide the help they need to regain independence.
Canine Companions was the first assistance dog organization to be accredited by Assistance Dogs International, and have provided assistance dogs to over 4000 people with disabilities.
