CCI is the largest non-profit provider of assistance dogs, and have provided assistance dogs to over 3,000 people.
Meet volunteers from this organization and learn how this fundraiser will benefit Canine Companions for Independence Wounded Veterans Initiative by providing highly-trained assistance dogs at no cost to veterans and active duty personnel with physical disabilities from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and to military hospitals and medical centers. For veterans making a new start and putting their lives back together from an injury, an assistance dog can provide the help they need to regain independence.
