Canine Companions for Independence

  • 4 people are interested

The Old Dominion Chapter of Canine Companions for Independence is seeking individuals who are passionate about our mission and interested in volunteering on a planning and fundraising committee in the Richmond (and surrounding)area.

Founded in 1975, Canine Companions for Independence(r) 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.

The assistance dogs we breed, raise and train aren’t just the ears, hands and legs of their human partners. They’re also goodwill ambassadors and often, their best friends. They open up new opportunities and new possibilities and spread incredible joy. We unite people with dogs in a powerful program that leads to greater independence and confidence.

We are looking for people with a variety of skills, talents, and knowledge. Event planning, organizing, and execution, as well as fundraising experience/knowledge, is desired. Initially, this committee will work on one 5k run/walk event for us; however, the goal is to form a committee that can work on several smaller events throughout the year.
