National Strategic Partners:

PetSmart for Patriots is a joint endeavor between PetSmart and Canine Companions for Independence, in support of Canine Companions' Wounded Veterans Initiative. The partnership helps increase access to assistance dogs for the military veterans who need them. Since 1992, Canine Companions has placed 120 dogs with military veterans, with the number of dogs placed tripling since 2008. PetSmart's support will also help raise awareness of service dogs among veterans and other pet parents. In the coming year, a veteran will be able to walk into any PetSmart store and learn about Canine Companions and what they need to do to get their own service dog. In addition, several patriotic themed services in PetSmart stores have been rolled out to honor the nation’s brave men and women in uniform. A portion of proceeds from special Grooming packages, PetsHotel® services and Training activities will benefit Canine Companions.  

For 15 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.Our partnership has worked to increase awareness of volunteer puppy raising and our mission to provide assistance dogs for people with disabilities.With Eukanuba’s help we launched Canine Companions’ very first live puppy cam. Nearly 700,000 unique viewers tuned in online to watch the E Litter and Hero Litter grow from their first moments of life to eight weeks old. Since 2007, Eukanuba has welcomed Canine Companions at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship with in-ring signage, PSA’s, dog activities and awareness booths.


Canine Companions and the makers of NexGard® (afoxolaner) have teamed up to promote awareness and to educate all dog lovers about the critical need to protect their pets against fleas and ticks. Through an innovative social media campaign, Canine Companions and the makers of NexGard launched the #DogGoneFunny campaign. The public was invited to share the funny antics of their dogs on social media. For every post, view or share of the campaign, NexGard sponsored $1, up to $100,000.
