We rely heavily on our volunteer puppy raisers and graduates to speak to organizations about Canine Companions. Therefore, our ability to accommodate each request depends on our volunteers schedules and the presentation location. We ask that you please submit your request at least 6 weeks in advance. You may submit your request as early as you like, but please keep in mind we are generally not able to confirm a presenter until a month before the date. If your presentation is part of a conference or larger outreach activity, please explain that in the comments portion of the application. We try our best to arrange for an active assistance dog or puppy in program to accompany the presenter, but if this is not possible we will notify you in advance. Finally, we do try and limit the travel distance for our graduates and puppy raisers, so if we do not have an active volunteer in your area, this might affect our ability to fulfill your request. If we are unable to find a presenter, we can mail you information, including a video, about Canine Companions for Independence.
There is no fee for this service, though we are a 501 C3 non-profit organization and donations are kindly accepted. Please make all donations payable to Canine Companions for Independence.
If you are interested in a presentation, please complete the form below and someone from our staff will follow up with your organization after the information is received.
