About Canine Companions for Independence:
Founded in 1975, Canine Companions for Independence is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. Headquartered in Santa Rosa, CA, Canine Companions is the largest non-profit provider of assistance dogs, and is recognized worldwide for the excellence of its dogs, and the quality and longevity of the matches it makes between dogs and people. The result is a life full of increased independence and loving companionship.
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 knew we could help and in 2008 we launched our Wounded Veterans Initiative.
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.

"She gave me responsibility, independence and the confidence to go out there and try things I didn't think I could do," he explains. Now, Lance says, "I'm happy to be an example of how much independence a Service Dog can bring to someone with a disability. Canine Companions is a wonderful organization, and I'm proud to be a part of it."
