Northeast Region Graduations

A Message from Canine Companions for Independence:

Canine Companions is taking precautions related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). All remaining graduations in 2020 will now be private and closed to the public. We understand this decision may be disappointing, but we know it is in the best interest of all. Please note: While ceremonies won't take place, we are committed to moving our mission forward and will be working directly with students to deliver some curriculum through distance learning to the best of our ability. While we can't gather together and celebrate these teams, please enjoy the slideshows honoring the new partnerships.

Our campus is currently closed to visitors and volunteers. Please be patient with us as we may reschedule some appointments and activities. We look forward to being able to see you and serve you in our usual fashion as soon as possible!

As we have more information on our 2021 graduations, we will post it here.

Stay safe everyone!


Congratulations to our March 2020 graduating class!
