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.

"Canine companions changes lives every day but in my case it was profound. My first dog Satine gave me back responsibility, independence and the confidence to go out there and find a way to live life with a C5 spinal cord injury. Ten years later my successor dog Auggie and I charge forward each day like there's no tomorrow. I'm the luckiest guy in the world, hands down."
