Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence

Lions Club participation dates back to Canine Companions very beginnings in the mid-1970s. Lions and Lioness's in Northern California were the first volunteers recruited by Canine Companions to serve as puppy raisers and breeder caretakers. Interest grew and the Lions Project was formed in 1983 to coordinate and support efforts of Lions, Lioness and Leo Clubs across the United States through a Club Membership and volunteer program.

LPCCI membership provides a wide range of awards that honor club members while making donations. For more information, please contact:
