If you love dogs and helping others, this is the best way in the world to truly make an impact on another person's life!

By helping to raise and train a future assistance dog, you are enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities, bringing them more freedom, independence and peace of mind.

We’re with you every step of the way!

No experience is needed to work with our puppies. We have amazing trainers to teach you how to raise a future assistance dog. You’ll learn new skills at class, get comfortable taking the puppy in public while attending our group outings, and we promise you’ll make some new friends along the way too.

Volunteers with our program should live in either the Twin Cities or near Eau Claire, WI to attend training classes once a month. Can Do Canines covers the costs of everything. We simply need you to bring this dog into your loving home.

About Can Do Canines


9440 Science Center Drive, New Hope, MN 55428, US

Mission Statement

Can Do Canines is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with specially trained dogs.


Our assistance dogs fetch amazing things. They provide the gifts of freedom, independence, and peace of mind to our clients and their families. These wonderful canines are often adopted from local animal shelters and are specially trained for our clients who live with disabilities that involve mobility challenges, hearing loss or deafness, seizure disorders, autism, or diabetes complicated by hypoglycemia unawareness. Dogs, training and supplies are provided to each client free of charge thanks to the work of dedicated volunteers and contributions from generous individuals, corporations, foundations and service groups like the Lions.
